About the Play …

What do we do about the servants?

As evidenced in British programs such as Upstairs, Downstairs or Downton Abbey, and the more recent Hotel Portofino, the long-suffering members of the upper class have to contend with their servants as much as their own foibles.

ATC Partners with Make Way for Books This Holiday Season

During The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley, ATC will be collecting new or gently used books for children up to 18 years of age as part of Make Way for Books’ Blue Book House Project.

Storybooks (board books, picture books, chapter books) and children’s literature can be dropped off in the lobby during any performance of the production.

Through the Blue Book House Project, Make Way for Books distributes free books through nearly 50 social services organizations. The aim of the project is to enable families to build their home libraries, giving their children access to books that will help them develop a lifelong love of reading and prepare them for success in school. The project is also intended to help develop a greater culture of literacy in the Tucson community. Last year, the Blue Book House distributed nearly 12,000 books to children and families.
