World Premiere

Austen fans are in for a treat with this witty version of the classic novel!

Sense and Sensibility follows passionate, emotional Marianne and practical, steady Elinor Dashwood as they balance sensible behaviour and sensitivity, life and love, after their father’s death.

A cast of six women create 25 vibrant characters in Penny Ashton’s joyous retelling of this whirlwind journey of romance and sisterhood.

“Not only is it charming, passionate and funny, but it is still wildly relevant; a widowed mother trying to provide for her family of girls faced with a wage gap and respiratory infections, all in a time of extreme housing uncertainty? 1811 starts to look a lot like 2023.”
