Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen
Sense and Sensibility is presented by spescial arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
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.”
