Times are tough for the Dashwood women. Mr. Dashwood has just died, his son from his first marriage has inherited the family estate and all dad's money, and now they have to find a new home and hope for some charity. Ninteen-year-old Elinor has a good head on her shoulders and helps her mother keep the family together by remaining calm and collected. Marianne, two years younger, has a much more romantic view of the world and believes that love will find a way to lift her (and her family) out of their current dire straits. And just like that, two men appear who would fit the bill for the Dashwood sisters. Edward is the sort of stable, solid man who would be perfect for Elinor, and Mr. Willoughby has a zest for life that rivals that of Marianne. But what's this? More obstacles appear before the sisters to threaten their romances? It's gonna take a whole lot of sense and sensibility to work it all out. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis presents Jon Jory's adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility Tuesday through Sunday (February 6 through March 3) on the Browning Mainstage at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves; 314-968-4925 or www.repstl.org).

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 6. Continues through March 3, 2013
