Terribly funny letter from Mr Bennet to his “dear Lizzy” can be found in this short (3-minute) performance by Timothy West, script by Sue Limb.

    Oh my, this is funny. Poor Mr. Bennet, married to Mrs. Bennet for 200 years! Well, I’ll say “thank-you, Mr. Bennet. We know that Mrs. Bennet could not last long in the world on her own and she adds a bit of ridiculousness that, I confess, part of me enjoys.”
