Together the women must learn to mix sense with sensibility to find happiness in a society where love is ruled by money. Written with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. “Sense and Sensibility” examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
“Sense and Sensibility” is directed by Katie Chidester and performed by Zion Aguilar, Steven Biggs, Michelle de la Pena, Kerri Hellmuth, Holly Jones, Rose London, Jill Cary Martin, David Rodriguez, Kendall Sinclair, Maya Thompson, and Mark Wickham.
