Sense and Sensibility by Kate Hamill adapted from the novel by Jane Austen
Produced by The Cape Playhouse
June 21 - July 1, 2023
" This creative, funny adaptation of Austen’s classic is not to be missed, beginning with the amazing set (scenic designer Alexander Woodward) offering a bare-bones look at the Playhouse stage, open to its backstage innards, beams and rafters, like a work in progress, with occasional add-ons of gauzy draperies or a glittery chandelier. A jack-of-all-trades cast takes on numerous roles, both human and, yes, animal. Wigs or dresses may be added on stage, and scenes change as a chair is rolled around or a spotlight switches direction. Applause is due to fine direction by Jessica Holt." - Cape Cod Times
"Jessica Holt directed this reimagined story in a uniquely fresh way, jam-packed with humor and modern flair....“Sense and Sensibility” is a show that will dazzle you with wit and whimsy and leave you wanting to come back for more!" - Cape Cod Chronicle
