"Sense & Sensibility" Opens Today at The Port Gamble Theater
The Port Gamble Theater Co. is excited to present Jane Austen's "Sense & Sensibility" July 10th - 26th in the historic Port Gamble Theater, which is now 109 years old.
"Sense & Sensibility" is a novel by Jane Austen, and was her first published work when it appeared in 1811 under the pseudonym "A Lady". A work of romantic fiction, better known as a comedy of manners, Sense and Sensibility is set in southwest England, London and Kent between 1792 and 1797, and portrays the life and loves of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne. The novel follows the young ladies to their new home, a meagre cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience love, romance and heartbreak. The philosophical resolution of the novel is ambiguous: the reader must decide whether sense and sensibility have truly merged.
