Sense and Sensibility
Arts Alive is bringing a touring show of Sense and Sensibility to The Market Theatre on Saturday 1 July. The show is by Hotbuckle Productions, a local theatre company that specialises in adapting classic novels with a stripped back ensemble.
Sense and Sensibility is a satirical novel by Jane Austen, published anonymously in 1811. It tells the story of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, as they come of age. Upon the death of their father, the sisters and their widowed mother are forced to move from the estate they grew up on when it is passed down to their older half-brother, John. They move to Barton Cottage, on the property of a distant relative, Sir John Middleton.
Despite their different personalities, the sensible Elinor and the impulsive Marianne, experience much love and heartbreak.
Jane Austen’s captivating story is brought to life by Hotbuckle, in this new version by Artistic Director, Adrian Preater.
“With live music, sharp characterisations, dazzling humour, and theatrical inventiveness, yet another English classic novel is brought wonderfully to life — Hotbuckle style,” said Hannah Prior, Artistic Director at Arts Alive.
