About This Show

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and sensitive 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 reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, do you make the choice to follow your heart? Sense and Sensibility runs in repertory with Silicon Valley Shakespeare’s production of Measure for Measure, by William Shakespeare.
