By Kate Hamill

based on the novel by Jane Austen

Directed by Taibi Magar

a gossip-driven comedy of reason and romance

Playwright Kate Hamill gives us a fresh, comic take on Jane Austen’s beloved novel. This eminently theatrical adaptation follows two radically different sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—in the wake of their father’s death, as they face wave after wave of dance partners and dinner parties amid an English society mad for gossip.
