Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility
by Austin Shakespeare

Nov. 11 - Nov. 27, 2022

Corinna Browning (via Austin Shakespeare)Explore the clever Jane Austen by entering her comic and romantic world of Sense & Sensibility. Two young sisters – marriageable – but with unique personalities: the sensible Elinor Dashwood and the impulsive Marianne Dashwood, meet the wildly romantic John Willoughby, the reserved Mr. Edward Ferras, and the more mature Colonel Brandon. The professional diverse company of 18 actors imaginatively creates this elegant world, featuring Regency costumes, and charming dance in the intimate Rollins Theatre.
