CAST (the ages noted do not need to reflect the age of the actor- spirit is what counts!)  5 w / 3 m

Women

Mary Bennet: 20ish -Finally coming into her own, Mary is no longer the plain, boring girl she once was. She has a fire in her now- intelligent, curious, and lively though her family still sees her as a future spinster looking after her aging parents. She does not suffer fools. NOTE: It would be a wonderful bonus if the actor playing Mary could play the piano.

Elizabeth Darcy:  mid 20’s - bright, lively, intelligent, witty, lovely and now happily married to Darcy and the lady of Pemberley. She misses her family and is delighted they will be coming together at her home for Christmas.

Jane Bingley: later 20’s - Now married to Charles Bingley and is seven months pregnant with their first child. As always Jane sees the good in people. She remains the kindest heart in the house.

Lydia Wickham: 20 ish - Always a flirt, youthful and self-centred. Her family remains concerned about the state of her marriage to Wickham, though she is careful not to admit problems. However, at her best, she is the one you want at a party, energetic, engaging and unstoppable.

Anne de Bourgh: 20’s - Only daughter of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Anne has always lived in her mother’s shadow never having to ask for anything or speak for herself. Suddenly alone at Rosings, she is determined to demand what she wants just like her mother.

Men

Arthur de Bourgh: 25A studious, socially awkward only child who has never been around women or large families. He has spent most of his adult life studying at Oxford – always discovering, never graduating. It has been easier to live through books than engage people. He has just inherited a large estate, Rosings and has no idea what to do next so has accepted the invitation to spend Christmas at Pemberley.

Fitzwilliam Darcy: 30’sA loving, generous, and intelligent husband. In his home, he is quiet and vigilant so sees what others often miss. He knows what being lovelorn is like.

Charles Bingley: 30 ish -  As always, a lovely, sweet, gracious and focused on the love of his life, Jane. He is very excited about becoming a father. He is a good friend and always ready with his hand and a smile.

You are all to come to Pemberley at Christmas.” -Lizzy, Chapter 60, Pride and Prejudice So what will happen when the Bennet’s gather for Christmas at Pemberley. It is now 1815 and is has been 2 years since Lizzy and Jane were happily married at the end of Pride and Prejudice. What sister will be the focus this time – well, Miss Mary Bennet – the bookish, judgemental, mediocre pianist! Oh, what changes have occurred in the last two years for Mary to become the unlikely heroine of this story. Determined to cast off her role as dutiful middle sister, she begins to assert her knew found confidence. When unexpected guests arrive, Mary’s new sense of self is tested by her family and a new friend. The play is described as being “droll and delicious” and it is. (Some familiarity with the story of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen would be helpful when preparing to audition.)
