Jane’s Birthday Party
Every year for our December meeting, JASNA PS has celebrated Jane Austen's birthday. We don't always manage the exact date, as our meetings are held on Sunday afternoons, but we ALWAYS celebrate! This year, this horrible year, is no different in that regard. We WILL celebrate by killing off a character who is someone we all love to hate!
Who Killed Mr. Collins? A Pride and Prejudice Murder Mystery!
A "cast" of 8 characters have been visiting at Longbourne. One of these 8 people has committed murder most foul! Was it you?!?!? I'll never tell!
A special note: even the murderer doesn't know whodunnit until the final reveal. One of us is going to get quite a shock! Then again, who doesn't daydream about ridding the earth of Mr. Collins once in awhile?
Open to one and all - please come for the murder and stay for the fun! And please be sure you have a beverage with which to toast Jane for her birthday!
You must register to participate - so we can cast you in your role and send the information you'll need to play the game. There is no charge for this meeting, and we're looking forward to hosting a wide variety of people from all over North America! Now that you have been formally invited, please respond by December 7th to let us know if you wish to play. If you don't care to play but would like to watch, we can make sure you will see one cast's deliberations.
