Watch "Mr. Darcy & Mr. Bennet Meet For A Whiskey"
The play was written by Bob as a sequel to "Pride & Prejudice". It's 23 years later, and Mr. Darcy has children, grandchildren, and a challenge that he feels only his father-in-law, Mr. Bennet, can help with. They meet at the historical Athenaeum Club in 1830s London. Napoleon has been defeated, Darwin is busy working on his magnum opus, and the patriarchy is well and truly established. Will Elizabeth Bennet challenge that?
