Totton: Wednesday 26th March 2014
Directed by Andrew Caple
The first round of the All England Theatre Festival (Western Area, Southern Division) is usually held at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre in Totton. Bench Theatre first entered the festival competition in 2006 and has been a regular contributor ever since.
Sense and Sensibleness is the kind of play Jane Austen might have written when under the influence of certain hallucinogenic herb teas. In the play, heroine Amber Vertigris despairs of ever finding a man to match her intelligence, wit and feminine wiles. Could Clayton Wensleydale be the man that finally tames her or is she destined to be left on the shelf with the candles, the tin of Spam and the high energy light bulbs?
This one-act play was staged at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre, Totton as part of the first round of the All England Theatre Festival 2014 competition.
