Mr Bennet

Chris Hiscock

The father of the Bennet family, a gentleman of "modest" income with five unmarried daughters. (Keep in mind that while the Bennet's are not incredibly well off, they are still upper-class, have an estate/farm that they earn an income from as landlords, servants, money to buy clothes and bonnets and parasols and have multi-course dinners and parties). Mr. Bennet has a sarcastic, cynical sense of humor that he uses to purposefully irritate his wife. Though he loves his daughters (Elizabeth in particular), he is a very hands-off parent, preferring to withdraw from the endless drama and excitement his wife causes and sit in his library.
