‘What point is there to life but to share one’s joys!’

A classic tale of sisters, suitors and losing your senses. Six spectacular women breathe life into 24 characters in this colourful romp through the British Regency period. Left destitute on their father’s death, sensible Elinor and madly passionate Marianne are seeking true love and happiness – but just what secrets are the gentlemen hiding behind their flannel waistcoats ? Based on Jane Austen’s masterpiece, Sense and Sensibility is the latest rambunctious rewrite by Penny Ashton (Olive Copperbottom, Promise and Promiscuity) and is Ashton’s directorial debut. Austen fans and novices alike will delight in the hilarity, throbbing hearts and vivid theatricality of this bold production.
