AN evening of Regency wonderment with a twist can be sampled on Sunday in the grounds of Belsay Hall.
Chapterhouse Theatre Company brings its new adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility to the venue.
Adapted from the novel by Laura Turner and directed by Rebecca Gadsby, the tale follows sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood as they make their first forays into the decadent world of eighteenth-century society after falling on hard times.
There will be plenty of excitement, romance and intrigue as the sisters fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time in their quest to find the balance between sense and sensibility.
Visitors are encouraged to take low backed chairs or rugs to the open air performance, as well as picnics, and to dress for the weather.
The show starts in the Walled Garden at 7.30pm. The area is open for picnics from 6.45pm.
Tickets cost £14 for adults and £12 for concessions and children. Advance purchase tickets are available at £12 adults and £10 concessions and children.
