Open-air theatre production of Jane Austen’s ‘Sense and Sensibility' on Sunday 29th July 2018
Join Chapterhouse Theatre Company this summer and Picnic with family and friends in the picturesque grounds at the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood make their first forays into the exciting world of Regency society.
Adapted by award-winning writer Laura Turner, this exquisite and lively tale follows the sisters as they fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time in their quest to find a balance between sense and sensibility. Picnic in some of the most beautiful gardens and enjoy a night of magical theatre under the stars.
