Sense and Sensibility on Sale!

ssfacebookheader

Commemorating the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death!

Amicus Productions presents Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility adapted by Jessica Swale at The Papermill Theatre, at the Todmorden Mills historical site (67 Pottery Rd, Toronto).  Sense and Sensibility runs February 2nd -4th and 9th-11th at 8pm and February 5th and 11that 2pm. Tickets are $25 regular, $20 seniors, and $15 students. Tickets may be purchased online at www.amicustickets.ca  or by phone at 416-860-6176.

As Classicism and Romanticism meet head-on at the turn of the eighteenth century we enjoy an intimate look at the triumphs and tribulations of two seemingly lovelorn sisters: one duty-bound, the other longing to live a full life. Yet for both the reality is dependency: protecting their well-being by submitting to the wishes of their future benefactors. Despite the entreaties of men who may or may not be honourable, these women move forward and fate eventually smiles on them. In other words, this is every bit a Jane Austen romance.
 
Sense and Sensibility is produced by Chris Coculuzzi and Kathy Plamondon and directed by founding Amicus member, Maureen Lukie with set design by Arash Eshghpour, lighting design by Karlos Griffith, costumes by Lindsay Forde, and sound design by David Fitzpatrick.  Stage Managed by Cherie Oldenburg, this production features the talents of Tamara Freeman as Elinor, Jackie Mahoney as Marianne, Conor Ling as Edward, Rouvan Silogix as Willoughby, Matthew Payne as Colonel Brandon, Peta Mary Bailey as Mrs. Dashwood, Sara Douglas as Margaret, Mandi Sunshine as Fanny Dashwood, Andrew Horbatuik as John Dashwood, Lindsay Bryan as Mrs. Palmer, Rob Candy as Sir John, Jenn Keay as Mrs. Jennings, and Riley Anne Nelson as Lucy.
