Winter Play - Sense and Sensibility:

posted Jan 15, 2020, 9:42 AM by Lori Cowan-Lane

S
A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters - sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne - after their father's sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable.  Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality.  Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures.  When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?  
Sense and Sensibility is playing January 29 & 30 at 7:30 pm and February 1 at 2:00 pm & 7:30 pm at the SHS Performing Arts Center.  Adult tickets are $10 each and senior & student tickets are $8 each.  There is a STUDENT ONLY special of $5 on OPENING NIGHT (Jan 29) & MATINEE (Feb 1) performances.  Tickets can be purchased at the high school from Debi Bear or on-line at the following link:  http://bowmentheatre.com/tickets/
