“Jane Austen is alive and well and rolling on casters.” —The Boston Globe

Bursting with humor and bold theatricality, this charming and wildly inventive staging of Jane Austen’s classic romantic comedy follows the adventures of the Dashwood sisters — and a whirlwind of snippy town gossips — after their sudden loss of fortune. Adaptor 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.
