SYNOPSIS: This charming imagined sequel to Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE brings the Bennet daughters alive again at a Christmas gathering at Pemberley. Elizabeth, now married to Mr. Darcy and Jane (now expecting a child with Charles) are blissfully happy; Lydia, saddled to the ill-suited Mr. Wickham, denies her unhappiness with her continued flirtations. The awkward middle-sister, Mary, has blossomed into an intelligent, curious young woman and now, with the help of fate and her sisters, she meets her soulmate, Mr. Arthur De Bourgh – until an uninvited guest threatens to spoil everything.



Anne DeBourgh – (20s) – a spoiled young woman who has been raised with great privilege. Having lived in her mother?s overbearing shadow, Anne is now free to be herself since her mother’s death. Unfortunately, she a real “chip off the old block” with many of her mother’s most infuriating qualities. Determined. Dismissive of those she considers inferior. Arrogant. She now desires marriage and will stop at nothing to get her man. Actress must have upper-class English accent and understand style for this comedy that takes place in Jane Austen’s world of 1848.
