Aquila Theatre Sense & Sensibility ~ Oct. 3
To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, Aquila Theatre breathes life into one of Austen’s most beloved works in a wildly inventive new production. Sense and Sensibility poignantly and cleverly illustrates the effects of economic uncertainty and illuminates a world in which choices are extremely limited, especially for women. Though the stakes are high, Austen’s tale is a classic romantic comedy revolving around the lives of two sisters after the untimely and unexpected death of their father. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak, and surprise abound!
