    Penned by MTC Mellon National Playwright in Residence Lauren M. Gunderson and former Director of New Play Development Margot Melcon, the final installment of the Christmas at Pemberley trilogy follows Mr. Darcy’s younger sister, Georgiana—an accomplished pianist—and the youngest Bennet sister, Kitty. Georgiana, shy but creative, is living under the scrutiny of her commanding older brother; Kitty, now free of the influence of her gregarious sister Lydia, is Georgiana’s joyful, practical best friend. It is Christmastime at Pemberley and the pair impatiently await the imminent arrival of Henry Grey, Georgiana's equally shy secret correspondent. When the gentleman enters a family holiday in full force and is met by the unwelcoming presence of Mr. Darcy, Georgiana fears her chance at love will be lost forever. The future is never certain, however, and love has a way of arriving exactly when it is meant to. The world premiere of Georgiana and Kitty: Christmas at Pemberley is a co-commission by Marin Theatre Company in partnership with the Jungle Theater in Minneapolis and Northlight Theatre in Chicago.

    "Lively, funny and sensitive. Lauren Spencer delights as Georgiana. Yet the spark comes from the indomitable spirit, Kitty, portrayed by Emilie Whelan with great verve. The situations and interactions among the characters seem genuine...this whole play works so well."

    Marin Independent Journal

    "Four and a half stars.

    What more could theatergoers ask for at Christmas time? 
    It’s a dazzling production. You’ll leave the theater uplifted — 
    a rare enough event and one to be especially relished during trying times."

    Pacific Sun/The Bohemian

    "Everyone finds love at Pemberley!
    Director Meredith McDonough’s cast give it their all. Scenic designer Nina Ball and costume designer Fumiko Bielefeldt drape the stage and cast in magnificent 19th-century accoutrements that, when combined with sharp dialogue and smart performances, make this show a feast for the eyes and ears."

    San Francisco Chronicle

    “A feast for actors! 

    The playwrights have a deep understanding of theater as alchemy…great craft and talent and insight. Meredith McDonough’s crackerjack direction can make an unspoken signal ripple through an ensemble and evolve. Nina Ball’s lavish sets…[and] Fumiko Bielefeldt’s costumes…[provide] visual pleasure. The beating heart of the show is Lauren Spencer’s Georgiana, who seeks not only the right to love but the right to be an artist.”

    San Mateo Daily Journal

    "A joyful, uplifting way to celebrate the holidays."

    TalkinBroadway.com

    "Playwrights Gunderson and Melcon have given us a delightful bit of holiday entertainment that feels—like the begowned women themselves—frilly and colorful on the surface, but corseted underneath with a framework of feminism. The cast is wonderful, and perfectly in tune with each other. It's almost as if we are watching a real family, so natural and fluent are their interactions. [The] finale is a lovely concoction that melts sweetly in your mouth with just a hint of spice.  I for one welcome this journey into the world of Austen. "

    Theaterdogs.net

    “Highly enjoyable, smart and full of real charm and warmth. There’s  an intelligence and spirit at work here. Austen would no doubt love to see the triumph of some her women characters as envisioned by [playwrights] Gunderson and Melvin.” 

    Theatrius.com

    “As we enter MTC, we are spell-bound by Nina Ball’s amazing, luxurious Romantic Period opulence. The magnificent 1800s piano gleams in a rich wood-paneled library with elegant antique furnishings. A Christmas tree stands boldly with a shining star atop, a new-fangled tradition. Christmas music fills the air. Planning the holiday, the Bennet sisters skirt around the living room in chaotic holiday glee, in Fumiko Bielefeldt’s lovely gowns to punctuate their characters. Director Meredith McDonough maintains the flavor, the language, and humor of the Austen era, with passionate musical interludes by composer Jenny Giering. Under the charm of the Bennet’s family Christmas, [playwrights] Gunderson and Melcon remind us that powerful relationships help foster change.”
