Directed by Stephanie Sandberg

Wednesday, December 7 - Friday, December 9, 2016

Lenfest Center/Johnson Theatre

"Sense and Sensibility" is a lively and fun adaptation of Jane Austen's novel.

"This 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.” - Dramatists Play Service
“…an unconditional delight…invigorating…a bouncy, jaunty take on Austen…remains remarkably true to the values and priorities of its source. The classic Austen preoccupations with real estate, income, class, reputation and equilibrium in life are all rendered brightly and legibly here.” —NY Times.
