Sense and Sensibility at the Erie Playhouse – A Spirited Romance!

The charming, funny and heartfelt drama – Sense and Sensibility – takes center stage at the Erie Playhouse March 8 – 24.

Scandalous secrets, burning betrayals and suave (and some not so suave) suitors line the path to true love in this fresh adaptation of Jane Austen’s first novel by Jon Jory.

When the death of their father leaves two sisters with uncertain prospects, they soon find that the course of true love never runs smoothly. Filled with a rich assortment of characters, Sense and Sensibility “has a freshness, speed and immediacy that, while always in sync with the humor, sentiments and manners of Austen’s late 18th century English country-and-city society, gives the storytelling a contemporary energy that is downright irresistible.”—Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times. 

Leading the cast are Marie Glaser as the passionate Marianne and Jennifer Blair as the common sense sister, Elinor. The eligible suitors include Domenic Del Greco as the insincere womanizer, Willoughby; Evan O’Polka as the shy Edward Ferrars and Jawn Gross as the honorable Colonel Brandon. The exceptionally talented cast is rounded out with Gretchen Kerr(Fanny), Teresa Testrake (Mrs. Dashwood), Doris Becker (Mrs. Jennings), Kathleen Cahill (Lucy Steele), Ed Moss (Sir John Middleton) and Kirsten McCain, Christopher Hinchman and Stephen Salchli playing multiple roles.

Carolin Lynn directs, with Joe Hassler designing and lighting the multi-functional set and Angela Howell creating the period costumes.
