Death Comes to Pemberley

A coach races up to a country house with a hysterical passenger shrieking, "Murder!" What better way to continue Jane Austen's immortal novel Pride and Prejudice? This delicious homage to Austen, adapted from P.D. James' clever whodunit, stars Anna Maxwell Martin ("The Bletchley Circle"), Matthew Rhys ("The Americans"), Matthew Goode ("The Good Wife") and Jenna Coleman ("Doctor Who"). Elizabeth and Darcy never knew marriage would be like this! Six years after the end of Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth and Darcy plan a ball with fatal consequences. A family enemy takes charge of the case.

The Buddha

The Buddha

Tuesday, August 26 at 8 p.m.

Two-and-a-half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree.  The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth.  He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that other could find too.
