The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley

Thursday, Dec 1, 2022 at 6:30pm


Join the Rhode Island Historical Society on Thursday, December 1, for Austen-inspired holiday cheer with Barker Playhouse’s production of The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley.

Expanding on the world of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride & Prejudice, The Wickhams takes place at the estate of Elizabeth and Darcy during the height of holiday preparations. A no-nonsense housekeeper, a spirited new maid, and a lovesick, enterprising footman see their work interrupted by a stream of guests from upstairs, including an unexpected late-night visit from George Wickham, Lydia’s rogue of a husband and Mr. Darcy’s sworn enemy.
\Prior to the performance, guests will be treated to light refreshments featuring regency-era holiday treats, including mulled wine and mince pies. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the production will begin at 7:30 p.m.
