JANE – Presents 20’s-30’s. The eldest and most beautiful Bennet daughter. Kind, idealistic, diffident. Always tries to do the right thing. MISS DE BOURGH – Lady Catherine’s daughter; a gremlin. Probably allergic to the sun. Underneath all her veils, she may be covered in scales.
LIZZY – Clever, spirited; can be sharp-tongued. Gets flustered, which makes her klutzy. Prides herself on good judgment. Not especially beautiful. Very, very scared of marriage, after absorbing the lessons of her parents’ marriage. (This actor does not double.)
LYDIA – Presents 14-16. The youngest Bennet. Lively, prone to imitating others’ behavior and eavesdropping. LADY CATHERINE – Patrician. Caesar-meets-drill sergeant.
MR. DARCY – One of the richest men in England. Too proper for his own good. Awkward in most social contexts. Prides himself on self-control and good judgment. (This actor does not double.)
MR. COLLINS – A pedantic, obtuse man. The original mansplainer. Rector to Lady Catherine. WICKHAM – An unfairly handsome and charming gentleman. Probably a sociopath. Raised with Darcy. MISS BINGLEY – A very rich, very beautiful young woman. Fancies herself witty.
MR. BINGLEY – Presents late 30s-40s. Loves the world and the world loves him. Mr. Darcy’s particular friend. Almost literally a dog. MARY – The third Bennet girl. Violent and dark undertones. Prone to pedanticism and sulking. A dark, goth Brontë character trapped in an Austen world. Coughs to get attention, or to make a point. May fancy that she is dying.
CHARLOTTE LUCAS – Same age as Lizzy. A practical girl with a good sense of humor. MR. BENNET – The patriarch of the Bennet family. Finds amusement in absurdity. Often looks for respectable ways to escape from the chaos of his family life. Can be somewhat apathetic, probably a bit depressed, under everything. Enjoys antagonizing. Disappointed in marriage.
MRS. BENNET – The matriarch of the Bennet family. Mostly a silly woman, of mean understanding and variable temper. Hypochondriac. When she’s upset, she fancies that she’s dying. The business of her life is to get her daughters married. She traumatizes her family with some regularity. SERVANTS – The “help” in the various households.
