Returning to Queens Theatre after the witty and fast-paced Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Aquila Theatre brings Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility vividly to life. After the untimely and unexpected death of their father, two sisters are forced to leave their comfortable lives. Their only hope is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy. Aquila Theatre expands the canon of classical works in this bold and exciting new production.

A Word from the Director

“The story of the Dashwood Sisters and their circuitous paths to love is that rare breed of classic romantic comedy that can still warm hearts and split sides, even 200 years after the novel was originally published. We are so excited to present Sense & Sensibility in the trademark Aquila Theatre fashion. With high energy and impeccable style, we’ll explore this timeless story’s many facets, vivid characters, and pockets of universal humor with your modern audience.”

—Desiree Sanchez, Director
