Sense and Sensibility by Kate Hamill

Set in gossipy 18th-century England, playwright Kate Hamill’s fresh, comic take on Jane Austen’s beloved novel, “Sense and Sensibility,” follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Together the women must learn to mix sense with sensibility to find happiness in a society where love is ruled by money. Written with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. “Sense and Sensibility” examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
