Live-streamed from the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds. Followed by a live Q&A hosted by Libby Purves
“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 spring. 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…
Live from the stage of the magnificent Regency Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, 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…
These live performances will be followed by a LIVE Q&A WITH ADRIAN LUKIS hosted by Libby Purves, radio presenter, journalist, drama critic and author. A previous Times Columnist of the Year and author of 12 novels and non-fiction books, she was for 40 years a BBC Radio 4 broadcaster after becoming the Today programme’s first woman and youngest-ever presenter.
