Sense and Sensibility - the players need you!

The University of Kent Players are very pleased to announce that their next production will be Jane Austen’s ‘Sense and Sensibility’ – coming to the Gulbenkian on the 6 – 8 September!

We will be auditioning for the production on 8th and 10th May from 5.30pm-7.30pm in KS4 and all staff are invited to attend – no previous acting experience is required and it is very informal and fun. We would also be interested to hear from anyone who would like to help out backstage.

About the show

When their wealthy half-brother cheats them of their fortune, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are left penniless. They are forced to leave the comforts of Norland Park and relocate to chilly Barton Cottage in Devonshire, but when John Willoughby, a handsome stranger, arrives one day with a rain-drenched Marianne in his arms, the sisters are convinced that their fortunes are changed forever.

About the University of Kent Players

Founded in 2013 by Neil Hornsey, the University of Kent Players are made up of staff and friends of the University of Kent and currently put on two productions per year at the Gulbenkian Theatre. Our productions always raise money for a charity through ticket and programme sales and our members are from all walks of life with varying levels of experience in theatre. Anyone can join and get involved, not just on stage but also backstage. We hold regular socials and lunches and have loads of fun doing what we love.

If you would like to be involved in ‘Sense & Sensibility’ in any way then please do contact us on – we would love to hear from you!
