About the Book

The Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, have very different ideas about the propriety of love. Elinor is temperate and rational, while Marianne is fueled by youthful passions. Cast from their childhood home by the whims of fate, the sisters still manage to attract suitors.

Elinor’s quiet beauty attracts the equally quiet and reserved Edward Ferrars, while Marianne’s impulsive zest for life draws the attention of both the heroic Colonel Brandon and the charming but roguish John Willoughby. But there are a multitude of obstacles on teh road to romance in Paula K. Parker’s sparkling stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel.

“Sense and Sensibility” was not the first novel Jane Austen wrote, but it was the first she published, and remains one of her most beloved works. Paula K. Parker’s faithful stage adaptation maintains the style and romance of Ms. Austen’s original novel without adding modern proclivities.
