Audition for REP productions:
Sense and Sensibility

by Kate Hamill. Directed by Cate Clelland.

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters, shortly after their father’s sudden death. Set in gossipy 18-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humour, emotional depth and bold theatricality. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Performing 17 November – 3 December 2022.

Auditions will be at Canberra REP Theatre in the Ryan Room

Saturday 20 August 10am – 4pm
