Limited return of our play-by-mail, commissioned by Tiny Dynamite
Georgiana Recovered in Time, an original play-by-mail, is back for a limited number of recipients!
Georgiana Darcy was refined and polite – or tried to be, anyway. A thwarted elopement threatened to tame her wild heart, but all the good breeding in the world can only go so far. Two centuries later, her American great-great-etc.-grandniece finds a trove of letters and objects from her ancestor, and she passes them to you. Join us for a handcrafted story of love, distance, and what it means to bridge the two – all set in the world of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice.
Over the course of 10 mailings sent to your home, including packages and postcards, you’ll be immersed in two love stories: Georgiana’s and her modern descendant’s. You’ll get a peek into what comes after the novel for your favorite characters, and receive handcrafted treasures – including some for you to make yourself.
The first mailing will be shipped on February 18th, 2022. Availability is strictly limited.
- Mailings will be sent roughly once a week until the conclusion of the story.
- Packages may vary in size.
- Look out for Tiny Dynamite in the return address or a distinctive floral emblem to identify mailings that are part of the story.
- Packages and postcards will be numbered on the exterior packaging so you know what order to experience them in should they arrive out of their intended order.
- If you think one of your packages has been lost, please reach out to us here.
- The story builds upon itself as it goes; we recommend keeping the letters until the experience is complete.
U.S. addresses only – unfortunately, we cannot accommodate international shipping.
Thank you for joining us for this at-home experience. We are excited to keep bringing you new stories in new ways even as we come back together in person!
Meet the creators
Natalia de la Torre
Natalia de la Torre is a prolific creative force in Philadelphia theater. Costume designer, scenic painter, wig stylist, craft artisan — Natalia does it all!
Natalia’s PPP in Place experience, Georgiana Recovered in Time, will come to you through the mail. Letters, packages, and surprises will deliver a modern, irreverent, and whimsical twist on the works of our beloved Jane Austen, as Natalia works in collaboration with Jane Austen, Abridged co-writer and artistic associate Meghan Winch.
In Natalia’s words: “As a designer, sometimes I feel pigeon-holed no matter how many different skills I cultivate. But right now, the slate feels wiped clean and all theatermakers are in the same reset/holding position. I get to storytell in ways no one considered I could. The risks we take are exciting when we are invited to leave our comfort zones.“
Meghan is a Philadelphia dramaturg and actor, and Tiny Dynamite’s artistic associate. She’s also one of the cowriters of Tiny Dynamite’s hit The Complete Works of Jane Austen, Abridged!
Meghan is collaborating with Natalia de la Torre on Georgiana Recovered in Time, a series of 10 packages and postcards that will come to you through the mail. Two love stories – one modern, one set in the world of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice – will be revealed through words and crafts, some of which you’ll even make yourself.
In Meghan’s words: “As others have pointed out before me, there’s something really resonant today about the way Jane Austen’s love stories play out. I’ve been craving stories about love, connection, and joy, even (or especially) from a distance, and it’s been great fun to write one alongside Natalia’s delightful designs.”
