Help transport Theatrical Outfit to 1815 England with the set, costumes, wigs and technical elements for Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley!

About the Project

Southeastern premiere by Margot Melcon and Lauren Gunderson, a Georgia native and author of critically acclaimed Silent Sky. 

Help transform Theatrical Outfit into 1815 England at Christmas for the production of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, and cozy up with your favorite Pride and Prejudice characters at Pemberley, the grand estate of newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Darcy.  
Your support provides Theatrical Outfit with the necessary funds to build a period set, lavish costumes, glamorous wigs, and intricate properties that will give life to the production of Miss Bennet: Christmas at Permberley.

The show follows Middle daughter Mary Bennet, single, bookish, and often misunderstood by her sisters, blossoms when a curious visitor proves himself an intellectual match and kindred spirit.  With the use of their own literary devices (love letters), can their relationship blossom? Told with modern wit and period style, this effervescent, comedic sequel to one of the most beloved literary romances of all time will enchant Jane Austen fans and new-comers alike.  

“When my co-author Margot Melcon and I started Miss Bennet, we wanted to create a holiday story for everyone that explores the complexities of family and love. It had to be funny, moving, romantic and smart. It had to be something Jane Austen would approve of. We are so proud of the play and the incredible reception its premiere received across the country last year. I can’t think of a better community with whom to share this story than my Theatrical Outfit family.” –   Lauren Gunderson, playwright
