This isn’t your grandma’s Sense & Sensibility. The Nashville’s Repertory Theater’s production of Sense & Sensibility is fast-paced with overlapping scenes and set changes. The audience’s point of view is constantly shifting to various points of the stage.
The treatment marries traditional Austen imagery with contemporary design elements. The juxtaposition of the old and the new connects new and returning audiences. This contrast references the two sided nature of gossip and society depicted in the play.
The duality of the characters’ wealth, status, insecurities and faults, are represented in the key art by the contrasting design elements and the differences between the manor and the cottage in the clouds. The two homes also represent the change of the Dashwood’s monetary status.
