A classic novel brought to life for ages 13 and up!

Sense & Sensibility

Adapted by Kate Hamill

From the novel by Jane Austen

October 5-27, 2024 @ STARworks - 100 Russell Dr, Star, NC    

Following the wild success of PRIDE & PREJUDICE last season, which played to sold out crowds every night, this fresh adaptation of Austen’s treasured novel is wonderfully modern, full of humor and emotional depth.  It’s late 18th-century England, and the Dashwood sisters’ lives are turned upside down when their father passes away.  Together they must learn to find happiness in a society where love is ruled by money.
