Get a sneak peek at the look of PlayMakers Repertory Company's "Sense and Sensibility" by Kate Hamill. Some of PlayMakers' younger acting company members will headline the production, with Geoffrey Culbertson ("Twelfth Night," "The Crucible) as dastardly John Willoughby, Rishan Dhamija ("My Fair Lady," "The May Queen") as stalwart Edward Ferrars,Shanelle Nicole Leonard ("My Fair Lady," "Intimate Apparel") as the sensible Elinor Dashwood, and PlayMakers newcomerEmily Bosco as her flighty sister Marianne. The production is directed by Taibi Magar, in her PlayMakers directorial debut.

Hamill's adaptation of "Sense and Sensibility" brings out the whimsy and wit at the heart of this beloved tale. The Dashwood sisters, level-headed Elinor and passionate, impetuous Marianne, are torn from their comfortable upper class lives when family fortunes change, and tossed into a world swirling with the social pressures of class, money, and reputation. Mix in a few dashing love interests and a gaggle of gossipy socialites for an energetic romp through the 19th century that will delight Austen fans and novices alike.

"Sense and Sensibility" runs from October 18 through November 5 at the Joan H. Gillings Center for Dramatic Art on campus at UNC-Chapel Hill. For information and to purchase tickets, call 919.962.7529 or visit playmakersrep.org. Individual ticket prices for "Sense and Sensibility" start at $15.

PlayMakers Repertory Company is the professional theater in residence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina's premier resident theater company for more than 40 years. PlayMakers has been named one of the "best regional theatres in America."
