Being Mr Wickham – Premier production – 6pm (duration 90 minutes)
Written off as a rake and reviled as a rogue, join George Wickham on the eve of his sixtieth birthday to discover his version of some very famous literary events. From childhood games at Pemberley to a run-in with Lord Byron via marriage, Lydia, and just a little bit of matchmaking for Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy, Mr Wickham is ready to set the record straight. This brand-new production by Catherine Curzon sees Adrian Lukis return to his celebrated role as George Wickham, Jane Austen’s most quintessential trouble-maker. Followed by Q&A session with author and actor.
