Written by Lauren Gunderson (author of this past season’s Silent Sky) and Margot Melcon, this “sequel” to Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice sees the Bennet sisters reunited for Christmas at the home of Lizzy and her husband, Mr. Darcy. Mary, the bookish middle sister, is still unattached. Mr. Darcy announces that he’s invited Arthur to join them for the holidays at Pemberley. Thus begins the inevitable romance. This new play is destined to be a holiday classic. Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York. 8 p.m. shows on November 29, 30, December 6, 7, and 12 - 14. 2 p.m. shows on December 1, 7, 8, 14, and 15.
