111 N. Hale St Wheaton
Jane Austen's classic novel about two sisters, close at heart yet disparate in disposition, springs to life on the Playhouse 111 stage in a brisk retelling by Jon Jory. The Dashwood sisters Marianne (sense, as in sensory delights) and Elinor (sensibility) and their newly widowed mother must find a new home when father's inheritance detours to a half-brother and his stingy, manipulative wife. That change of venue brings opportunities for romance, but fickle hearts and capricious fate pose obstacles to their happiness. Director Randall W. Knott directs an outstanding cast in a fast-paced rendition of this time-honored literary treasure.
