Sense and Sensibility

April 13-21, 2018
Drayton Hall Theatre
Written by Kate Hamill
Based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Lindsay Rae-Taylor

A critical smash when it premiered in 2014, Kate Hamill’s exuberant adaptation brings a comic, theatrical flair to Jane Austen’s perennial favorite. The Dashwood sisters — prudent Elinore and impulsive Marianne — find their world turned upside down upon the death of their father, which robs them of their wealth, social standing, and most importantly, chances for marriage. As they struggle to navigate a life of little means and become entangled in complicated romances, the sisters must learn from their opposite temperaments to find true happiness.
