Presented by COFA: Department of Theater and Dance
Given the urgency of the situation regarding COVID-19, the recommendations from leadership at The University of Texas at Austin, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), it is with great consideration and sadness that we have made the difficult decision to suspend the remainder of our Spring 2020 Season indefinitely. This suspension applies to mainstage season performances, studio productions and all public events at the department for the remainder of the semester.
This situation is constantly evolving and we are working closely with our partners at The University of Texas and the College of Fine Arts to determine what this will look like for our department. We will share updates as we receive them through our mail list (join our mail list here). Those who have purchased tickets to either Sense and Sensibility or (R)evolution may convert tickets to a donation, exchange tickets for a gift certificate or request a refund by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 512.471.1444 or 800.678.6010. Please note that email is preferred as University of Texas and Texas Performing Arts staff are currently working remotely. Be well and we look forward to seeing you at the theatre again in the future.
Adapted for the stage by Joseph Hanreddy and J.R. Sullivan

Presented in Partnership with Texas Theatre and Dance
When their father suddenly passes away leaving his estate to his son, sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood find themselves financially destitute and their reputations tarnished. The personifications of good sense and emotional sensibility, the Dashwood sisters must now navigate their new lives and romantic entanglements under the judgmental eyes of 19th-century England in order to regain their social standing and find true love.
Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility comes to life on the stage with vivid imagery, biting wit and undeniable passion through the Dashwood’s adventures and misadventures on their journey to find happiness.
In a world where money and power define your worth, can you really be true to your heart?
