Sense and Sensibility

Romance – Economy – Austen

In a time and a class when marriage was the most important economical decision a person could make we follow two very different sisters in finding a partner and a future life. One is the sense and once is the sensibility. Follow how they, who have limited financial means, act very differently in finding a future life partner and somebody to love.

Through predefined scenes and letters we play out Jane Austen’s novel Sense and Sensibility – an immortal story about female life in England in the beginning of the 19th century. When it comes to marriage, should you trust your sense or sensibility? And what can you afford?
