Outdoor Theatre – Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
Sun 4th June 2023
6.30pm (earliest entry 5.30pm)
The social season is upon us! Heartbreak Productions cordially invites you to this year’s ‘Sense and Sensibility’ Matchmaker’s Ball. Ladies Elinor and Marianne Dashwood each seek to meet an honourable man of good fortune (and handsome countenance if possible) by whatever means necessary. As you mingle amongst the beau monde, revelry and romance will ensue and we shall witness these two sisters’ sense and sensibility. Rumours abound that royalty may even be amongst our number…
If you’re eager to partake in the ups and downs of Regency romance, don your finery and join Heartbreak Productions for their open-air adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. Jane Austen’s biting social satire about sisters in straitened circumstances is sure to satiate your summer romance requirement. Pack a picnic, grab your chaise longue (or blanket), and settle in for this literary classic with a Heartbreak twist.
