MARY BENNET’S BACK! Theatrical Outfit reprises this holiday delight with a top-notch cast that is half new and half returning. Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley is a witty and winning sequel based on characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It comes from Decatur-born, San Francisco-based playwright Lauren Gunderson and colleague Margot Melcon, and takes us back to 1815 England and into the timid heart of the bookish middle Bennet sister (Amelia Fischer), and her hopes for independence, intellectual rigor and maybe even love (Jonathan Horne again plays Arthur De Bourgh). Critics have called Christmas at Pemberley “a celebration of nerd love in all its overeducated glory.” It’s warm, smart and cheerful, and a wonderful way to spend a holiday afternoon or evening. Miss Bennet is the fourth-most-popular play in America in this 2018/19 season, with productions at 13 theaters nationwide. Why wait?
