SENSE & SENSIBILITY 

by Kate Hamill

based on the novel by Jane Austen

November 17 - December 11

 

 “Perhaps the greatest stage adaptation of this novel in history.” 

—Huffington Post


A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. Sense & Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
