Join us for a unique reimagining of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, produced by The Atlanta Shakespeare Company in collaboration with Belle Esprit.

When the wealthy Mr. Dashwood dies, his introverted daughter Elinor finds herself alone at the helm of a dysfunctional family. To make matters worse, Elinor seems to be falling in love with the only man she can’t have...while her headstrong sister Marianne succumbs to the charms of a local scoundrel. As the Dashwood sisters navigate romance, heartbreak, and loss, they find an unlikely ally in their fearless tween sister Margot.

Written and directed by Claire F. Martin (Troilus and Cressida), this vibrant new adaptation of Sense and Sensibility illuminates Austen’s Regency world and the enduring bond of sisterhood. Belle Esprit is thrilled to bring this immersively-staged world premiere to Atlanta and the ASC.

Want to feel extra fancy? Audiences are welcome to dress as if they are coming to a Jane Austen tea party (especially on opening night, Saturday April 6, but anytime during the run!)
