Sense & Sensibility

An Austen-tatious delight.

January 12 – February 10, 2019
On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

“This is how you bring Jane Austen to the stage ... irresistible.” -The Washington Post

Bursting with humor and bold theatricality, this charming and wildly inventive staging of Jane Austen’s classic romance follows the adventures of the Dashwood sisters — and a whirlwind of snippy town gossips — after their sudden loss of fortune. Playwright Kate Hamill and director Eric Tucker of New York’s acclaimed theater company Bedlam revive their celebrated production in Portland after taking audiences by storm in New York and Boston.

Run Time
Approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one intermission.
