The Milwaukee Repertory Theater presents: Sense and Sensibility
PERIOD-PERFECT ADAPTATION OF SENSE AND SENSIBILITY COMES TO THE REP’S QUADRACCI POWERHOUSE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
WITH ALL OF THE DELICIOUSNESS, FLIRTATION AND FOLLY OF THE NOVEL
From the author of Pride and Prejudice comes this heartwarming, humorous tale of two sisters struggling to move past a family disaster.

The play is adapted from the book by Mark Healy. Making his Rep debut, Art Manke will direct the play. The cast features Associate Artists Jonathan Gillard Daly and Laura Gordon, and guest actors John-Patrick Driscoll, Nick Gabriel, Kate Hurster, Ben Jacoby, Victoria Mack and Meaghan Sullivan.
