Sense and Sensibility
April 15 - 25, 2021
By Kate Hamill
Based on the Novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Valerie Joyce
“It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
Bursting with buoyant humor and frank affection, Kate Hamill’s delightful adaptation of Austen’s beloved novel comes alive on stage with deep feeling and breathtaking theatrical ingenuity. This audacious, inventive new play faithfully follows the (mis)adventures of the destitute Dashwood sisters–sensible Elinor and sensitive Marianne–as each navigates life and love following the untimely death of their father. Crippled by financial hardship and pursued by a dizzying whirl of gossip, the two must determine whether to follow the rules of a rigid society, or abide by the beating of their hearts.
