Jane Austen: Sense and Sensibility

Buy Tickets

One of the most popular and beloved authors of all time, Jane Austen wrote with insight and wit about her own 18th century English upper middle class. “Sense and Sensibility” poignantly and cleverly illustrates the economic uncertainty created by the rigid rules of male inheritance and the limited choices for women of that era. After the untimely and unexpected death of their father, two sisters, the level-headed sensible Elinor and the hopelessly romantic Marianne, along with their mother, are forced to leave their comfortable way of life. With their only hope a profitable marriage, this classic romantic comedy is filled with love, heartbreak and unexpected twists as the sisters forge a new future for themselves.  Aquila Theatre adapts Austen’s work in a bold and exciting new production which incorporates artistic director Desiree Sanchez’ innovative use of space, movement, design, and sound.
