Adrian Lucas, who starred alongside Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle in the BBC’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is to star in a new live-streamed show about the character.
Written by Lukis and Catherine Curzon, the one-man play will be streamed live from Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds for three performances with an on-demand version released later in the year. The live shows will be followed by a Q&A with Lukis.
The production will look at Mr Wickham’s life both on and off the page.
Lukis said of the production: “I’m thrilled to be reunited with my old friend, George Wickham. Having spent years defending his dubious reputation, I look forward to finally setting the record straight.”
The play will be live streamed from the stage of the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds at 7:30pm on Friday 30th April and at 3pm and 7:30pm on Saturday 1st May via originaltheatreonline.com. Tickets are on sale now.
