Set in 1795, this charming and romantic tale follows the struggles of the sensible Elinor and passionate Marianne Dashwood. When their father dies suddenly, the Dashwood sisters navigate an uncertain future in a world of complex social mores fueled by gossip and intrigue. This classic romantic comedy features beloved literary figures and some of Jane Austen’s sharpest observations about family, society, money, and matters of the heart.
Elizabeth Helman, director and OSU Theatre faculty member comments, “This is such a unique adaptation of a familiar story – it’s fast-paced and very funny, but with extremely poignant moments. It’s full of challenges for performers and surprises for the audience.”
