Bradley University Theatre Presents Sense and Sensibility
April 25th-May 5th
Adapted by Kate Hamill from the novel by Jane Austen
Never out of print since its 1807 debut, Jane Austen's classic first novel comes to vibrant life in this acclaimed stage adaptation. Facing bleak prospects, the disinherited young Dashwood sisters discover love, endure heartbreak, and achieve triumph as England swerves between the reason ("Sense") of the late 18th century and the surging romanticism ("Sensibility") of the 19th. An indelible gallery of lovers, rogues, greedy in-laws, generous friends, and witless twits, are rendered with Austen's spectacular language and benevolent humor, and staged with ingenious theatricality and style.
Performance dates are April 25, 26, & 27 and May 2, 3, & 4 at 7:30pm and April 28 and May 5 at 2:00pm.
Ticket prices are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $8 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the Cultural Events Box Office located in the Hartmann Center, by calling (309) 677-2650 or online at www.bradley.edu/theatre
