WIMBORNE DRAMA PRODUCTIONS PRESENT SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
By Jane Austen, Adapted by Jessica Swale
Open air production in the grounds of Deans Court Wimborne
Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are left penniless after their wealthy half-brother cheats them of their fortune. They are forced to leave the comforts of Norland Park and relocate to a cold Devonshire cottage. When a devilishly handsome stranger arrives at Barton Cottage with the rain-drenched Marianne in his arms, the Dashwood girls are convinced that their fortunes are changed forever.
Whilst the sensible Elinor pines for quiet Edward Ferrars, impulsive Marianne loses herself in the idea of her hero on horseback, and for a girl who feasts on poetry and music, what else is there to do in Devon but dream of rescue?
Austen’s razor-sharp wit sizzles in this beloved tale of injustice, heartbreak and love in an adaptation that is as fresh as it is funny from Olivier Award-winning writer Jessica Swale. There can be few better ways to spend a summer’s evening than watching a popular play in idyllic surroundings! Directed by Tracey Nicholls. Produced by kind permission of Samuel French Ltd.
