A fresh take on Austen's beloved classic

Why See Sense and Sensibility?


Meet The Dashwood Sisters

Jane Austen's classic novel is brought to the stage in a new adaptation from ISU Theatre. Written by ISU alumnus Kerry Skram, this Sense and Sensibility influses Austen's work with a new female perspective for the 21th century, while still retaining all the novel's humor and social commentary. 

The story centers on a pair of sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, living in late 19th Century England. Elinor is the older and more reserved of the two, while Marianne is a free spirit who pushes against the constraints of polite society. We follow them as they move to a cottage in the countryside with their mother, and meet the various suitors who turn up at their door. Will any of them prove an intellectual match for the girls?
