Starring Adrian Lukis as George Wickham


On Sunday, August 29, 2021, 22 JASNA Greater Phoenix members and friends gathered virtually, via Zoom, to view “Being Mr. Wickham,” performed by Adrian Lukis. The play was written by Lukis and Catherine Curzon, and was directed by Guy Unsworth. Following the screening, there was another video with Q&A with Lukis, hosted by Libby Purves.

From the production’s publicity:

 “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. 

Join Pride and Prejudice’s most roguish gentleman on the eve of his 60th birthday to lift the sheets on what exactly what happened 30 years on from where we left him. 

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. 

This on-demand version was originally streamed live from the stage of the magnificent Regency Theatre Royal Bury St. Edmunds.
