By Kate Hamill
based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Taibi Magar
a gossip-driven comedy of reason and romance
Playwright Kate Hamill gives us a fresh, comic take on Jane Austen’s beloved novel. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, this eminently theatrical adaptation 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.
“…an unconditional delight…invigorating…”
“Perhaps the greatest stage adaptation of this novel in history.”
