The day you’ve been waiting for has finally come, dear reader. The day when Jane Austen characters finally succumb to their innermost desires – scenes of sinful scintillating salutations and comely courting cupidity.
Oh my, did you see Miss Bradshaw’s finger linger on the hem of her glove for a moment too long as she looked at Pastor Ellington? How impertinent! What is Dr. Hammersmith doing all those long hours at Ms. Tilly Gladwell’s bedside? And, my goodness, where are Mr. and Mrs. Gravely?! They haven’t left their barnyard loft for hours! It’s just a quaint and sleepy country estate….or is it?
Join The Hideout Theatre's top notch cast of award-winning improvisers who will bring the quiet romance and boundless politeness of Jane Austen to the throws of ravenous passion and desire we’ve all been waiting our very long lives for. Heavens, Mr. Darcy! is a play that is all completely improvised on the spot, complete with period costumes and music! (18+ only, please!)
