Sense and Sensibility
Of all the romantic comedies ever written, those by Jane Austen are not only the most romantic, but also the most fiercely and originally comic. And both Austen's keen sense of humor and deep humanity shine bright in Sense and Sensibility, Jon Jory's stage adaptation of one of her most beloved novels. Follow the Dashwood sisters -- practical, reserved Elinor and passionate and romantic Marianne -- as they discover that the course of love, though true, does not always go straight. Forced out of their family home by their father's death, Elinor relies on her common sense, while Marianne falls back on her feelings in dealing with their reduced circumstances. Now Annapolis Shakespeare Company presents a new live production of Sense and Sensibility famously adapted into a 1995 film starring Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant.
