        Review by Linda Waldemar January 20, 2000
This is an itsy-bitsy one-act play.  The action takes place on the day before Georgiana's wedding. The Bennet sisters, except Mary, and Mrs. Bennet are present.  Lydia has arrived, uninvited, on a mission for Wickham to blackmail Elizabeth about his and Georgiana's past.  The scheme fails, but Lydia manages to get money from everyone, nonetheless.

It is short and cute.  Worth reading or seeing if you run across it, but not worth making a special effort to get it.

A very slight one-act play that takes place during the preparations for Georgiana Darcy's weddings. The cast are the women of P&P and the main plot involved a (credible) threat of blackmail from Lydia Wickham regarding a possible revelation of Georgiana's past with George Wickham.

Not worth going way out of your way to find it, but once you do, it's an easy enough read.

I ordered a copy of a short play called 'Wedding at Pemberley'. It's not worth going out of your way to get.
