Lizzy & Darcy. Jane & Bingley. Lydia & Wickham. But whither poor Mary, the bookish, oft-neglected middle sister of the Bennet clan? In this delightful sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, Mary takes her turn at center stage & possibly even love as a Christmas celebration at Pemberley brings together beloved characters in a droll & delicious new holiday story. There are some new faces (one in particular) & a new tradition that involves dragging an evergreen tree from out of doors & standing it in the middle of a room.

Arthur de Bourgh – male identifying, 22, any ethnicity. A studious, unsociable, only child who has never been around women or large families. He is a loner who prefers books to people. He has recently inherited a large estate & has no idea what to do next.

Fitzwilliam Darcy – male identifying, 30, any ethnicity. A loving, generous, & smart (if slightly stiff) husband. He is quiet & vigilant & thus sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like.

Please e-mail photo/resume for consideration. ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS ONLY. Not accepting physical submissions for the time being. From submissions received, selected actors will be invited to submit a video audition.
