324 Pine Street (Inside City Hall)
Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy based on one of Jane Austen’s most popular novels. Aquila Theatre expands the canon of classical works for the stage by adapting this story in a bold and exciting new production featuring an innovative use of space, movement, design, and sound.
The story revolves around the lives of two sisters – Elinor, who is level-headed and full of sense, and the hopelessly romantic Marianne – who live in a world in which choices are limited, especially for women. After the untimely and unexpected death of their father, both sisters and their mother are forced to leave their comfortable lives while their half-brother and his wife inherit the family estate. As these sisters are left to fend for themselves, it seems the only hope is a profitable marriage. Directed by Desiree Sanchez.
