Aquila Theatre, Jane Austens Sense and Sensibility.
Aquila Theatre is the foremost touring classical theatre company in the United States and a national leader in Applied Theatre. Aquila produces bold and radical reinterpretations of classical plays for contemporary audiences.
Aquila expands the canon of classical works for the stage by adapting Jane Austens Sense and Sensibility in a bold and exciting new production. Sense and Sensibility is one of Jane Austens 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, the only hope for these two sisters is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy.--
