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. This eminently theatrical adaptation follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—as they learn to navigate gossipy late 18th-century England after their father’s sudden death.


“…an unconditional delight…invigorating…”
NY Times

“Perhaps the greatest stage adaptation of this novel in history.”
