How did I get to hear about their show? You know, the world is really a tiny marble thanks to the Net and the Janeite community on social media, so afriend of a friend sent them the link to My Jane Austen Book Club Facebook page, they got in touch, and here we are! Though I live in Italy and will definitely not be able to see them on stage in Australia, I'm glad to share the details of their project, to support their efforts and help them promote their Sense and Sensibility among the friends and readers of My Jane Austen Book Club. I'm sure there must be a few Aussie Janeites following and reading, and if there are any reading right now, please, spread the word out there!
This whimsical and amusing play rollicks about the English countryside following the fortunes and misfortunes of the Dashwood sisters, as they navigate their way through life and love, accompanied by a colourful cast of characters. In this production by Kate Hamill (Pride and Prejudice, Vanity Fair, Little Women), Jane Austen's classic novel gets a theatrical re-imagining of hysterical proportions. It's Sense and Sensibility as you know it, but with an energy and pace not previously seen.
