Based on the Jane Austen beloved novel, this refreshing, light-hearted romp through the English countryside is adapted for the stage by Kate Hamill. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—as they cope with changing social circumstances and wistful longings for love after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in late 18th-century England, with a fresh, inventive female voice, the play is told with quick, tight structuring and a chorus of gossips, full of both emotional depth and comic vitality. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
