Reddit user ByTingo was in for the surprise of her life when she was transported back to 1812 for one unforgettable day. Arriving home, she was stopped in her tracks by her sister screaming that “Mr. Bingley had returned to Netherfield at last.” As she entered her house, she was dressed in regency gown, handmade by her mother, and was given her script. She was cast as Elizabeth “Lizzie” Bennet.
As the dialogue began, she realized her entire family was in on the surprise. Her parents as the honorable Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, her brother-in-law as Mr. Bingley, her boyfriend as Mr. Darcy, and a slew of other characters proceeded to act out 30 minutes worth of scenes from Jane Austen’s famous novel Pride and Prejudice. Then the moment came where Lizzie and Darcy go for a walk, ending with him on one knee.
