"Mr. Wickham is blessed with such happy manners as may ensure his making friends - whether he may be equally capable of retaining them is less certain"

Mr Wickham is ready to set the record straight.

Adrian Lukis, who starred in the renowned BBC TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, returns to the role of Mr Wickham this summer.

Join Pride and Prejudice’s most roguish gentleman, George Wickham, on the eve of his sixtieth birthday, to lift the sheets on what exactly what happened thirty years on from where we left him...

Discover his own version of some very famous literary events.

What really happened with Darcy…?

What did he feel about Lizzie…?

What happened at Waterloo? Not to mention Byron…

 

This on-demand version was originally streamed live from the stage of the magnificent Regency Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds.
