Northlight Theatre has announced casting for its world premiere of Sense & Sensibility, a new adaptation of Jane Austen's novel, written and directed by Jon Jory. The production will run March 10-April 17, with a press opening on March 19.

A lack of family fortune means difficult marriage prospects for the Dashwood sisters- two girls who couldn't be more different. Both are seeking a husband, but find that neither Elinor's common sense nor Marianne's passion offer a key to happiness.

The cast will feature Brian Gill, Craig Heidenreich, Heidi Kettenring, Franette Liebow, Diane Mair, Ginger Lee McDermott, Si Osborne, Geoff Rice, Wendy Robie, Helen Sadler, Jordan Shappell, Penny Slusher, and Jay Whittaker.

Jory is known for his adaptations of classic literature such as Pride and Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables and The Gift of the Magi. As the Producing Director at Actors Theatre of Louisville, he directed over 125 plays. He conceived the internationally lauded Humana Festival of New American Plays, was the Artistic Founding Director of Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut, and has been inducted in New York's Theatre Hall of Fame.
