Mr Darcy Loses the Plot
Jane Austen sits writing, her quill scurrying across the vellum. She is dreaming up Darcy – a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane must abandon her work. Now left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator stitches her quilt. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a different tune.
“This merry romp will be as much fun to the novice as it is to the bookworm.. On leaving the venue, you feel one hundred times more invigorated than when you went in, with the chuckle-muscles positively aching at the glorious lunacy that Ms Fox and Ms Ryding punt into the auditorium”
