Sense and Sensibility
By Jane Austen, Adapted by Kate Hamill
A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive 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.
ECU/Loessin Playhouse performances are Thursday-Saturday and Monday-Tuesday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm.
