For the second time this spring, the curtain is rising! Once again, your Quad City Plus 60 Club is partnering with Playcrafters Barn Theatre, 4950 35th Avenue, Moline as they open their doors to Plus 60 members for a benefit performance on Thursday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m.
“Sense and Sensibility,” written by Kate Hamill and directed by Jennifer Kingry, is based on the novel by Jane Austen. A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved work follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters – sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne – after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and the bold theatricality. Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
