Jane Austen is one of the most beloved authors of all time and wrote with great insight about the lives of the English upper middle class in the late 18th century. Now, one of her most popular novels comes to life in a visionary, new production by Aquila Theatre, one of the foremost professional producers of touring classical theatre in the United States. Sense & Sensibility cleverly illustrates the economic uncertainty brought about by the common practice of the first-born male inheriting entire family fortunes. The story revolves around the lives of two sisters: Elinor, who is level-headed, and the hopelessly romantic Marianne. After the untimely death of their father, both sisters and their mother are forced to leave their comfortable lives, while their half-brother and his wife inherit the family estate. The only hope for these two sisters is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy sure to win over the hearts of audiences and Jane Austen fans alike!  www.aquilatheatre.com
