Sense and Sensibility

Back to Events

In 18th-century England, the sudden death of Henry Dashwood leaves two of his daughters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—both financially destitute and socially vulnerable. The Dashwood sisters must learn how to weather the ridiculous societal pressures of the time in order to find love and their place in this new world. When reputation is everything, Elinor and Marianne must decide: is it better to use sense or sensibility to win the day?

This charming, new adaptation—written by ISU alumnus Kerry Skram—imbues Jane Austen’s beloved classic with a fresh female voice, emotional depth, lots of humor, and bold theatricality.
