MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY continues Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice two years after the novel ends, now with bookish, middle-sister Mary as our heroine. As the Bennet sisters Mary, Jane, and Lydia gather at Lizzy’s estate for Christmas, an unexpected gentleman arrives. Has Mary met her intellectual match, and perhaps found true love? MISS BENNET is a romantic holiday comedy sure to delight Janeites and newcomers alike!
