Short Play

Dramatic Comedy

 At the dawn of the Regency, two sisters, Elinor and Marianne, are thrust into poverty by their brother's scheming and manipulative wife. Reduced to living with their mother in a tiny cottage with their prospects for marriage nearly ruined, the sisters are nevertheless courted by three dynamic men, each with a dark secret. The shy and awkward Edward Ferrars wins Elinor's cautious but constant heart, neglecting to tell her he is already engaged to another. Colonel Brandon desperately loves Marianne, but his former attachment to the ill-fated Eliza and his old-fashioned habits fill Marianne with mistrust and disdain. Instead, Marianne, passionate and reckless, falls head-over-heels in love with the dashing Willoughby, only to be deserted when his true character emerges. Their hearts broken, Elinor and Marianne nearly give up on love until fate intervenes. Based on the classic by Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility is just as appealing today as it was when it was first published in 1811. Two int. sets. Approximate running time: 45 minutes.
