SENSE AND SENSIBILITY

23 Jul – 27 Sep 2024

Sense and Sensibility

By Jane Austen 

Adapted by Frances Poet 

Pitlochry Festival Theatre and OVO Production


Marianne Dashwood, wild and impulsive, falls dangerously in love with the charming but roguish John Willoughby, ignoring her sister Elinor’s warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. 

Whilst Marianne wears her heart on her sleeve, Elinor suffers her own private heartbreak but conceals her true feelings, even from those closest to her.

Will the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love?

One of English literature’s most beloved classics is given a contemporary makeover in a fresh and funny adaptation by award winning Scottish playwright Frances Poet.

 

Includes musical arrangements and song performed by the cast.

This production can also be seen at OVO in St. Albans from 2 – 7 July and 12 – 18 August.
