Kentucky Shakespeare Showcases Sense & Sensibility
Performances will be held January 6-14
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 26, 2023) – Following the successful 2023 Kentucky Shakespeare run of Pride and Prejudice, Kentucky Shakespeare presents Kate Hamill’s joyous adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, Sense, and Sensibility at the Kentucky Performing Arts Center’s Bomhard Theatre.
This adaptation follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable.
Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
Performances will be held January 6-14 and tickets can be purchased at kyshakespeare.com.
