Following the events of Pride and Prejudice, supporting character Charlotte Collins (née Lucas) finds herself thrown into the unexpected role of romantic leading lady as she and her witless husband embark on an adventure to Scotland. Trapped in a narrative that’s spinning out of her control, Charlotte discovers that being a romantic leading lady is much more trouble than it seems from the outside–especially with the eyes of an entire audience on her. Romance, lies, bagpipes, French spies, kilts, and prohibitively stringent manners abound in this Regency-era comedy that poses the question: what happens to the characters who don’t end up with a Mr. Darcy?
