Sense & Sensibility

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen was published anonymously in three volumes in 1811. The satirical, comic story offers a vivid depiction of 19th-century middle-class life as it follows the romantic relationships of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, personifications of good sense (common sense) and sensibility (emotionality), respectively. They become destitute upon the death of their father, who leaves his home, Norland Park, to their half brother, John. With live music, multiple characterisation, humour and inventiveness, yet another English classic novel is brought wonderfully to life—Hotbuckle style!

Hotbuckle are a firm favourite of Heron audiences and delighted us in 2019 with Tess of the D’Urberville’s.
