By Jane Austen

About the Show

The penniless Dashwood girls are forced to leave the comforts of a grand home and relocate to a chilly cottage in Devonshire. Eminently sensible Elinor pines silently for the quiet and kind-hearted Edward Ferrars, impulsive and romantic Marianne loses herself in the idea of a hero on horseback, while Margaret just wants to be free to follow her own path and become a naturalist.

This new Jessica Swales adaptation of the dearly loved Austen classic brings the challenges and delights of the Dashwoods to life.
