Celebrate Jane Austen’s Birthday With Cosplay and Cake

Robert Wade

On December 16, 2022, Taproot Theatre Company will present a special Cosplay & Cake performance of The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley in honor of Jane Austen’s birthday.

Before the performance, arrive early for a free birthday cake. All customers will enjoy 25% off their concessions purchase if they are dressed in Austen-inspired apparel. For the 8 p.m. performance, doors open at 7 p.m. Jane, happy birthday!

The play, written by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon and inspired by Austen, will be presented from November 23 until December 30, 2022.

“In this all-new Jane Austen-inspired story, we return to the world of the Darcys and Bennets! Lydia’s come for Christmas, the halls are decked, and the aroma of everyone’s favorite orange biscuits fills the air. But downstairs the loyal staff scramble to keep a secret that could upend the festivities. Amid the chaos of Christmas, a little yuletide forgiveness might be the one gift everyone needs.”

Tickets are now available online.
