THE WICKHAMS

CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY

a jungle co-commissioned world premiere. 

 

The event of the season! Take a trip to the downstairs residence at Pemberley - the house a-twitter with the bustle of servants and the arrival of the Bennet clan as seen in last season’s hit, Miss Bennet. From the most produced living playwright, hailed by New York Magazine as “a rare theatrical talent,” comes a twinkling tale of family, honor, and love. Spend the holidays wrapped in Edwardian charm.
