This beloved story, set in early 1800s England, follows the Dashwoods and the period after they move to the family cottage of the Middletons. Daughters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are both looking for love, but the elder Elinor pursues romance through rationality and friendship, while Marianne lets her passionate heart take the lead. With just the right mix of humor, romance, and happy endings, the classic novel comes to life on stage in this Northern California premiere of a new adaptation of Jane Austen’s popular work.

This adaptation was originally commissioned by the Utah Shakespeare Festival, R. Scott Phillips, Executive Director, David Ivers & Brian Vaughn, Artistic Directors.
