A sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Miss Bennet is set two years after the novel ends and continues the story, this time with nerdy middle-sister Mary as the unlikely heroine. Mary is growing tired of her role as the dutiful middle sister amid everyone else’s romantic escapades. When the family gathers for Christmas at Pemberley, an unexpected guest sparks Mary’s hopes for independence, an intellectual match, and possibly even love! The Theatre at Marietta College will have a performance at 7:00 p.m., Friday, December 2nd, at the Friederich Theater. Approximately 25 students are either acting or working behind the scenes.
