In this vivid new adaptation of Jane Austen’s first published novel, we meet the Dashwood sisters, whose happy lives are dramatically changed in the wake of their father’s death. Their home is taken by their half-brother and his overbearing wife and they must learn to live on much less far away from all they’re accustomed to. Amid their misfortune, love alights: the very sensible Elinor falls for the equally cautious Edward Ferrars, while the flighty sensibilities of Marianne flutter ill-advisedly to their handsome, reckless neighbor John Willoughby. Both hard lessons and gentle guidance help them learn that happiness in love is an unpredictable struggle against the most important social values: family, honor, and wealth. Luckily, with Jane Austen love wins.

Jen Taylor

Jen Taylor first read Pride and Prejudice when she was eight years old, and she couldn’t fathom why Elizabeth Bennet would choose the haughty Darcy over the kind, charming Wickham. In any case, she was an immediate Austen fan and, thankfully, her discernment developed with age. Jen is honored to help bring Austen’s novels to life with Book-It Repertory Theatre.
