Description

Sense and Sensibility tells the story of the Dashwood sisters as they navigate the world of love, loss and society. We travel with them as they explore the value of sense – pure logic – and sensibility – pure emotion. Austen protests against her period's typical view of women as sentimental creatures by giving them agency, purpose and drive. Sense and Sensibility is an uplifting story, rich in personality with a witty spirit of justice and depth of relationship. Can one sister learn to follow her head while the other learns to follow her heart?

An excellent performance. An able and well - directed young cast. Not seen them before, or been to this venue. But will look out for them next year. Would highly recommend.

This was an absolute delight with some very strong performances and a well-executed production overall. I was utterly charmed and enthralled. It was a wonderful ending to my Fringe. I absolutely recommend, and hope to see some of these fine young actors again in the future.

Humour is laced throughout this delightful adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. Managing to keep a great deal of the story in this condensed version, this is a fun and engaging show that should keep Austen fans happy. The ensemble works well together, with the Dashwood sisters particularly well...
