The critically acclaimed Elizabeth – Darcy is returning “home” to Campbell House for what is becoming a seasonal tradition!
This is a love story. This is a comedy. This is two women playing all the parts. This is the Jane Austen you love with a squeeze of lemon. This is you moving through a historic home with the story. This is you getting caught up, swept away, laughing out loud.
