Sense and Sensibility is one of Jane Austen’s most popular novels. The characters live in a world in which choices are limited – especially for the women. The story revolves around the lives of two sisters, Elinor, who is level-headed and full of sense, and the hopelessly romantic Marianne. After the untimely and unexpected death of their father, both sisters and heir
mother are forced to leave their comfortable lives, while their half-brother and his wife inherit the family estate. The only
hope for these two sisters is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic
romantic comedy.

Sense and Sensibility poignantly and cleverly illustrates the effects of economic uncertainty brought about by the common practice of the first-born male inheriting entire family fortunes, often leaving the rest of the family to fend for themselves.

This performance is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mississippi Arts Commission.
