About this show

After their father dies, the Dashwood women must learn to embrace a new life, for better or for worse. Sisters Marianne (a hopeless romantic) and Elinor (a stoic realist) experience the pitfalls of society, the generosity of new friends, and the passion of unexpected love in this world-premiere adaptation of one of Jane Austen's exquisite early novels. By battling through vicious gossip, relative poverty, and silly characters (not to mention countless setups by the "helpful" Mrs. Jennings), these sisters learn the importance of both sense and sensibility.
