The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis is no stranger to winning stage adaptations of Jane Austen, having produced Emma in 2008 and Sense and Sensibility in 2013. However, with Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, The Rep will present a new breed of Austen-inspired theatre.
FOX 2 wants you to win ticket to see Miss Bennett: Christmas at Pemberley.
The play runs at the Rep Theatre November 29 – December 24 on the Virginia Jackson Browning Mainstage at the Loretto-Hilton Center for the Performing Arts.
Written by the playwriting team of Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon, Miss Bennet is an imagined sequel to Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. This time, the bookish middle child of the Bennet family finally has her day. Constantly overshadowed by her four sisters, Mary Bennet finds hope for a new life beyond her family from an unexpected holiday romance. Austen fans and first-timers alike will find much to love in this alluring comedic tale.
Kate Abbruzzese leads a young and exciting cast as Mary, while Miles G. Jackson portrays her studious but socially maladroit suitor, Arthur de Bourgh. Both are making their Rep debuts.
