Sense and Sensibility

Elinor Dashwood has a lot of good Sense.

Her sister Marianne Dashwood has an excess of Sensibility.

Together they make a snappy title for Jane Austen’s classic novel of scandals, scoundrels and severely sprained ankles.

This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation from the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak.

All performances are in the open-air and will continue in all weather conditions bar a full-blown tempest. Please bring a picnic and something to sit on!

“What a glorious show this is… this good-humoured romp through the story really is top quality… As well as all the comedy, the Pantaloons players demonstrate a great warmth towards and understanding of the story and why so many people treasure it.”
(The Stage on Pride and Prejudice, 2015)
