SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
An adaptation of Jane Austen’s much loved novel 
by Pantaloons theatre group.

First up in our summer season of outdoor theatre in the fabulous setting of Abergavenny Castle grounds this August. This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation for outdoor theatre by The Pantaloons of Jane Austen’s much loved classic features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak. Elinor Dashwood has a lot of good Sense. Her sister Marianne Dashwood has an excess of Sensibility. Together they make a snappy title for Jane Austen’s novel of scandals, scoundrels and severely sprained ankles.

The Pantaloons gave their first performance at Abergavenny Castle last summer with Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, and went down a storm. Don’t miss them this year.

Tickets: Adult £14, Child £8, Family (2+2) £40; with special early bird rates until June 1st £12/£7/£35 from Abergavenny Museum tel 01873 854282
