Jane Austen's romantic novel comes to dazzling life in this spirited adaptation by local playwright Ellen Peterson. Brimming with wit, warmth and wisdom, Sense and Sensibility follows the plight of the downwardly mobile Dashwood sisters. As the family teeters on the edge of financial ruin, Elinor struggles to guide her family down a sensible path while Marianne plunges headlong into love. But in their desperate battle to find both affection and independence, the sisters must negotiate a truce between their heads and their hearts.
