Summary

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen 

Presented by The Online Stage 

Sense and Sensibility is Jane Austen’s first published novel. It tells the much-loved story of the two, very different, Dashwood sisters. Elinor suppresses her own emotions out of a keen sense of responsibility to her family and friends, while Marianne is highly expressive and romantic. When their father dies, British law leaves everything to their half-brother and his tight-fisted wife, and Elinor and Marianne, along with their mother and younger sister, have to move to a cottage on a relative’s estate where they experience the full spectrum of romance and betrayal.

Dreadful

I lasted about 10 minutes before I turned this off and returned the item. This is the most awful, hammy production you can imagine. Do not waste your money or credit
