Of all the romantic comedies ever written, those by Jane Austen are not only among the most romantic, but also the most fiercely and originally comic. And her keen sense of humor and deep humanity shine at their brightest in Sense and Sensibility. Follow the Dashwood sisters -- practical, reserved Elinor and passionate and romantic Marianne -- as they discover that the course of love, though true, does not always go straight. Forced out of their family home by their father's death, Elinor relies on her common sense, while Marianne falls back on her feelings in dealing with their reduced circumstances. Catch this new stage adaptation of Austen's Sense and Sensibility, directed by Brenda Hubbard, at Portland Actors Conservatory.
