Mary’s Chance at Romance
At the end of Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice, almost everyone marries, except for the plain, piano-playing Mary. The 2016 play Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley is set two years after the novel ends, and introduces the odd-duck-out to a possible romance. The play will be performed Fridays–Sundays, December 1–15, at the Spreckels Performing Arts Center in Rohnert Park. Friday and Saturday shows will be at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday shows at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10–$24 and may be purchased at tinyurl.com/yhg8q6gs.
