Overview

REVIEWS

Houston Chronicle: "Non-stop fun...A refreshing and exhilarating experience...A well-oiled machine with an outstanding ensemble cast in which 33 characters are in 45 scenes played by only 11 actors. It’s a marvel to watch" 

Houston Press: "A delight in every way…This show is catnip. It's also catnip for all theatergoers, through its intelligence, wit, and considerable charm in staging and overall production. It's stylish and well-crafted.”

 

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, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality.  Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
