Sense & Sensibility
Adaped by Jessica Swale

When their wealthy half-brother cheats them of their fortune, the penniless Dashwood sisters are forced to leave the comforts of Norland Park and relocate to chilly Barton Cottage in Devonshire. Eminently sensible Elinor pines for the kind-hearted Edward Ferrars, but the impulsive Marianne loses herself in the idea of her hero on horseback. When handsome stranger John Willoughby arrives one day with a rain-drenched Marianne in his arms, the sisters are convinced that their fortunes are changed forever.In Jessica Swale’s delightful adaptation of Austen’s dearly-loved classic, we follow the fortunes of Elinor and Marianne as they chase their dreams from Devonshire to London and back.

Alton, A Place I Call Home

Alton, a Place I Call Home is a multi-generational theatre project created and performed by the residents of Roehampton’s Alton Estate. Working with Group 64 Theatre Company, residents of the Alton Estate have created an exciting new piece of theatre that offers an insight into the past, present and future of Alton. ‘Story catchers’ have been collecting a multitude of stories from all over the estate from people of all generations, to show and celebrate the rich culture and joyful sense of community that exists there. G64 Directors have been working with children from Heathmere Primary School, along with teenagers, adults and older people, to understand what it really means to be from Alton! ‘Alton, a Place I Call Home’ will be performed on the Alton Estate and at Putney Arts Theatre as part of Wandsworth Arts Fringe 2023.
