"When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?"

 

Mayfield Drama Department is pleased to present its spring production -

Sense & Sensibility 

- a fresh stage adaptation by Kate Hamill based on the novel

 by Jane Austen.

This play combines a traditional story with modern sensibilities and unique staging, including a very present chorus of Gossips.  A great way to experience a classic tale.

 

THE STORY:

The play follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters - sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne.  After their father's sudden death the inheritance laws of the period leave them without money and with much reduced social standing.  When eligible bachelors Edward Ferrars, Colonel Brandon and John Willoughby enter the picture what will happen?

 

"The play is full of humour, emotional depth and bold theatricality.  Sense & Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous to societal pressures."

 

How different is our 21st century reality when judgement flies on Twitter, the image we want to project to others lives on Instagram and gossip flows on Snapchat?

 

Evening performances are Thursday, April 26th and Friday April 27th at 7:00p.m.  Adults - $15.00   Students/Seniors - $12.00

 

"Puts a contemporary spin on a classic story."
