It’s getting difficult to tell whose career is on more of a roll lately: Jane Austen, whose 200-year-old novels just seem to keep growing in popularity, or Kate Hamill, who
The Wall Street Journal named "Playwright of the Year" in 2017, in large part for her playful Austen adaptations. Her witty take on Sense and Sensibility was a hit at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in its West Coast premiere; Eric Tucker, of the New York theater company Bedlam, directs a version for Portland Center Stage." - Oregon Arts Watch
Bursting with humor and bold theatricality, this charming and wildly inventive staging of Jane Austen’s classic romantic comedy follows the adventures of the Dashwood sisters — and a whirlwind of snippy town gossips — after their sudden loss of fortune. Adaptor Kate Hamill and director Eric Tucker of New York’s acclaimed theater company Bedlam revive their celebrated production in Portland after taking audiences by storm in New York and Boston.
