Update 1 July 2019. Proceeds of this SOLD OUT event amounted to £487.50 which will go towards the costs of my trip to the Philippines during my sabbatical thank you for your continued support.

I’m delighted to welcome the marvellous, madcap and crazily inventive Pantaloons Theatre Company back to Billericay to perform their own twist on the Jane Austen classic ‘Sense & Sensibility’ in the Rectory Garden on Sunday 30 June 2019.

Doors open at 4.00 pm, performance starts at 5.00 pm

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 classic novel of scandals, scoundrels and severely sprained ankles.

This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation from the critically acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak.

Part alternative rock band, part thespian … wholly charming.

So good you may laugh your Pantaloons off!
