“It’s a beautiful story of a family who comes from wealth and quickly loses all of their wealth because they’re father dies and they find themselves in fairly reduced situation and the version we’re doing is … a bit more boisterous and a bit more fun and active.” – Miranda Daughtry, actor in the State Theatre Company’s Sense and Sensibility. 

You may have studied it in high school English class but Kate Hamill’s sparkling adaptation of Sense and Sensibility is Jane Austen on theatrical steroids. Performed by the State Theatre Company, this is a refreshing version of the classic tale.

Wavelength spoke to Miranda Daughtry who plays the younger sister Marianne in the production about what audiences can expect.

Catch the performance at the Dunstan Playhouse from May 4 to 26. Book tickets here.
