Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility
June 1st & 2nd at 7.30pm
“I wish, as well as everybody else, to be perfectly happy; but, like everybody else, it must be in my own way.”
Unfairly compelled to leave their family home and left almost destitute by their brother and his spiteful wife, the Dashwood sisters and their mother must make a new beginning. Despite their very different personalities, both the prudent, sensible Elinor and the impulsive, open-hearted Marianne suffer great sorrows in their affairs of the heart yet they finally find contentment and peace in their new lives. With dazzling wit, humour and sharp characterisations, Austen’s captivating story is brought to vivid life by Hotbuckle, in this new version by Adrian Preater.
