On Reddit, Bethany elaborated that her mother sewed five Regency dresses in the span of two weeks.

David Slater, Bethany's friend of five years and boyfriend of ten months, was hiding in a closet nearby, dressed as Mr. Darcy. "We met swing dancing at the University of Washington."

"One by one more and more family members joined the scenes. David took the script directly from the text of the book. My family did rehearsals in secret."

"David first declared his feelings for me on Christmas Eve, 2010," Bethany said in an email, "when he showed up unannounced on my family's doorstep with a book box he had carved with an exacto-knife (it was filled with chocolate and pipe tobacco)..."

"Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books. I loved that it involved family; my sisters, parents, his sister, brother-in-law, nieces... It was so special to interact with them and exchange knowing smiles during the production."
