An out of work, middle-aged writer in need of holiday cash decides to trade his dignity for a pair of jingling shoes and takes a job as an elf at Macy’s Department Store.

 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 and told with a fresh female voice, Sense and Sensibility  is full of humor, emotional depth and bold theatricality. “Inventive, faithful, clever and hilarious, Kate Hamill’s marvelous adaptation is one of the finest stage adaptations of a literary classic. Our Jane would have expressed her approval.”
