Margeson Theater | Directed by Mark Routhier
Adapted by Jon Jory | From the novel by Jane Austen
Jane Austen's classic tale of flirtation and folly
When a lack of luck makes for difficult marriage prospects, the Dashwood sisters set sail on the volatile seas of courtship. The sisters soon discover that neither reserved Elinor's common sense nor Marianne's impulsive passion offers the key to happiness. Scandalous secrets, burning betrayals, and unexpected twists line the path to true love in this lovely and intimate adaptation of Sense and Sensibility.
Sense and Sensibility is considered a family show and is suitable for most audiences.

"Sense and Sensibility is a sweet treat — delicious perfection from beginning to end." - Pam Harbaugh, Brevard Culture
