Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility has been newly adapted for the stage by Chapterhouse Theatre Company who return to Worthing’s Connaught Theatre after their successful productions of A Christmas Carol and Pride and Prejudice last year.

The tale of Regency splendour, complete with elegant period costumes and traditional song and dance, will allow audiences to enter Jane Austen’s unforgettable world of snobbery, scandal and high-drama.

As Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, played by Hayley-Marie Axe and Alyssa Burnett, make their first forays into the decadent world of eighteenth-century society. The brand new adaptation of Jane Austen’s lively tale follows the sisters as they fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time and attempt to find a balance between sense and sensibility.

The production has been adapted from the original novel by award-winning writer Laura Turner, whose recent work includes the BBC’s E20 and Hull Truck Theatre’s PlayWrite Programme.

Over its twelve-year history, Chapterhouse have enjoyed a range of national tours and enchanting open-air productions at country houses, castles and heritage sites across the UK.
