A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel 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 & Sensibility” examines our reactions — both reasonable and ridiculous — to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Directed by MaryBeth Dekara. Free with a Clark ID, $5 for the public.

  • Friday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m.
