A.R.T. Season

Sense and Sensibility
"Playwright Kate Hamill is the best thing to happen to Jane Austen since Colin Firth. Her wonderfully witty and whimsical adaptations of 'Pride and Prejudice' and 'Sense and Sensibility' are the best stage adaptations of Austen's work to date.
Broadway World
"Save your 'Hamilton' dollars and go see it."
Ira Glass


By Kate Hamill
Based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Eric Tucker

Eric Tucker's exuberant, inventive staging of Jane Austen's classic novel follows the adventures (and misadventures) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their sudden loss of fortune. Bursting with humor, emotion, and bold theatricality, Bedlam's Sense & Sensibility asks: when reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Young playwright Kate Hamill is the best thing to happen to Jane Austen since Colin Firth. Her wonderfully witty and whimsical adaptations of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility are the best stage adaptations of Austen's work to date. More

Bedlam's production of Sense & Sensibility is unlike any rendition of a Jane Austen novel you've ever seen. The cast members twirl about on rolling chaise lounges, dole out an endless array of outrageous facial expressions, and foster a rare level of intimacy between actors and audience... all under the vision of actress and playwright Kate Hamill.

Jane Austen’s novel Sense and Sensibility provides the source for the hilarious, entertainment, Sense and Sensibility, in a sassy theatrical production at the Gym at Judson. More

Janeites, rejoice! Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility... has been delightfully redeemed by a most surprising source: the Bedlam Theatre Company's radical, experimental, hilarious, lovable and altogether excellent adaptation for the stage. More

First presented for a short run in repertory in 2014, this enchanting romp of a play has returned on its own, with a few adjustments, but with its buoyant spirits, cunning stagecraft and enlivening insights intact. More
