sense and sensibilitySILOAM SPRINGS, Arkansas (Feb. 1, 2019) – John Brown University's Department of Music & Theatre presents a theatrical adaptation of Jane Austen's classic "Sense and Sensibility," performed Feb. 8, Feb. 15 and Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m., and Feb. 9 at 1 p.m. in the Berry Performing Arts Center.

Directed by JBU's Associate Professor of Speech and Theatre Josiah Wallace and adapted by Kate Hamill, the play centers around two young Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, who are left penniless and socially defenseless by the sudden death of their father. The sisters then struggle to navigate the perilous expectations of 18th-century British upper class.

Through this timeless tale of sisterhood, audiences will laugh, cry, be encouraged to love boldly and compassionately, and relate to familiar themes of love, family and societal pressure.

"It's a theatrical roller coaster ride of Austen's classic story," Wallace said. "The actors, designers and technicians are working tirelessly, and I can't wait to share this production with our community."

Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for senior adults and JBU alumni, faculty and staff, $7 for non-JBU students and $3 for JBU students. To purchase tickets, go to www.jbu.edu/tickets or call 479-524-7382.
