Reason and passion collide in Jane Austen’s beloved tale of sisterhood and romance. When sudden financial straits force the Dashwood family to move to a distant cottage, sisters Elinor and Marianne become ensnared in heart-wrenching romances. Directed by Bedlam Theater's Eric Tucker (The Wall Street Journal’s 2014 'Director of the Year'), this all-new production of the critically acclaimed play stars Caroline Sefanie Clay, Jacob Fishel, Maggie McDowell, Jamie Smithson, and Erin Weaver.
