Weekly Margin 2023, W23: Being Mr. Wickham

What: 59E59 hosts the unofficial sequel to Pride and Prejudice, co-written by and starring Adrian Lukis, who played Mr. Wickham in the best adaptation of P&P (don't @ me), which was first presented online by Original Theatre.
And? It was nice to get to see the performance in person, after having watched the filmed version. We were gifted with talkback after the performance, when we learned how much research and thought he put into the revisiting of his most famous role, of his Jane Austen scholarship, and aspects of his own life, and what it was like when turned sixty and started looking back.
