PREVIEW: Nonsense & Sensibility @Arts Theatre

Arriving at the Arts Theatre as part of  Women in the West End, a three week celebration of female creativity, is a new play by Tom Crawshaw based on Jane Austen’s work. 


Nonsense and Sensibility is a brand new take on classic Austen with a twist. It sweeps audiences into the Regency period: filled with dances, unwanted proposals and filled with laughs for fans of Jane Austen and those who are perhaps a little lost in Austen.

The cast performing on alternating performances are: Madeleine Gould, Henri Merriman, Leila Sykes and Stella Taylor. This new production is directed by Bips Mawson and produced by Ellie Claughton.

Tom Crawshaw is a past winner of the Cameron Mackintosh New Writing Award. Recent theatre credits include: Boris: World King which is transferring to Trafalgar Studios this April, Not The Messiah and Shakespeare For Breakfast. 

Anonymous Is A Woman’s Theatre Company brings audiences theatrical experiences that tell the unheard stories of women throughout history and across the world. The company was set up by two graduates of the Drama Centre London, Bips Mawson and Leila Sykes, as a reaction against the lack of female roles in the industry. The company are producing Women in the West End , running at the Arts Theatre from the 14th March to the 3rd April.

Nonsense and Sensibility will run at the Arts Theatre from the 14th March to the 3rd April. For more information and to book tickets visit:
