In the third installment of the Christmas at Pemberley trilogy, we follow Mr. Darcy’s younger sister, Georgiana, and Lizzie and Mary’s younger sister Kitty Bennet, who in the two years since the end of Pride and Prejudice have become best friends. Georgiana, shy and living under the scrutiny and control of her commanding older brother, is an accomplished pianist whose playing is filled with unparalleled sweetness and emotion. Kitty, now free of the influence of her flighty sister Lydia, is Georgiana’s joyful, practical confidant, determined to draw her friend out of her shell. It is Christmas and the whole family has gathered at Pemberley. Georgiana and Kitty are expecting the imminent arrival of Henry Grey, Georgiana’s secret correspondent, and his friend Thomas, but Darcy’s mistrust of all men around his sister leads to dashed hopes of a love that almost was as he drives Henry away.

The second half of the play leaps ahead twenty years, and Georgiana is set to premiere a new song on Christmas Eve, prompted by Kitty who, with her husband Thomas, has remained loyally by Georgiana’s side. Though she has become a well-respected musician and composer and is living a happy life, she never found love. But when the next generation of Bennet girls comes to London with their new friend, who happens to be the daughter of Henry Grey, to hear Georgiana’s concert, she may have a second chance.
