About the Play

Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility
adapted by Jessica Swale
directed by Peter Amster
April 14 - May 10, 2020

beloved romance

Three sisters and their widowed mother lose their family home and must create new lives for themselves in a tiny seaside cottage. Along the way they face kindness and cruelty, duty and deception, as they try to navigate the complex social rules for proper young ladies. What will lead to lasting happiness and true love: practical good sense or following the sensibility of your heart? Sit back and indulge yourself in the wit and wisdom, the beauty and charm of Jane Austen.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 2 hours and 35 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission

Sense and Sensibility is a period romance by Jane Austen. Recommended for patrons 9th grade and above. Due to content and length, children under 4 years of age are not permitted in the OneAmerica Mainstage and Upperstage Theatres. Learn more about our attendance policies here.

Artistic Note:
“Jane Austen originally published her novels anonymously; today, she is one of the most wildly popular classic authors. Why? Her best books are breathlessly compelling; I find that once I get started, I can’t put them down. Jane Austen writes about the emotional and economic tangles of family and relationships with clear, direct honesty, warm-hearted humor, and gripping storytelling. Our production of Jessica Swale’s stage adaptation of Sense and Sensibility offers a timely and timeless point of view on today’s ongoing struggle to make equal space for women in a man’s world.” –Richard J Roberts, Resident Dramaturg
