Pantaloons - Outdoor Theatre Group - Sense and Sensibility

Friday July 19th
Starts 6:30 pm


Elinor Dashwood has a lot of good Sense.

Her sister Marianne Dashwood has an excess of Sensibility.

Together they make a snappy title for Jane Austen’s classic novel of scandals, scoundrels and severely sprained ankles.

This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation from the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak.

All performances are in the open-air and will continue in all weather conditions bar a full-blown tempest. Please bring a picnic and something to sit on!
There will be a licensed bar and drinks available in the Clare Cottage Cafe.
Tickets available from the Cottage.
Adult - £13.50
Under 16 - £8.00
Family (2 Adults + 2 Children) £37.00
