Literary Parlor – Miss Marjoribanks
November 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm$8
Lucilla Marjoribanks is determined to look after her widowed father and become ‘the sunshine of his life whether he likes it or not. Once installed back at home and presiding over her father’s drawing-room, she launches herself into Carlingford society, aiming to raise the tone with her select evening parties. Lucilla is optimistic, resourceful, and completely without self-doubt, but will her indomitable nature diminish her marriage prospects? Miss Marjoribanks (1866) is a wonderfully comic depiction of the conventions and proprieties that rule a vacuous society.
