Ealing pubs to stage theatrical performance of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility

Ealing’s The Rose and Crown in South Ealing and The Duke of Kent pub in Pitshanger are to turn their gardens into open theatres with a production of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.

The Rose and Crown will stage the production on 23 May 2023 and The Duke of Kent will stage it on 8 June 2023.

It’s the first time for pub group Fuller’s to showcase a Jane Austen classic. In previous years, working with Open Bar Theatre, Shakespeare in the Garden has taken place.

Four performers will take to the pub garden as part of a tour of 23 pubs across London that starts from 10 May 2023 and finishes 10 June 2023.

The classic Austen book tells the story of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret as they come of age. It follows the three sisters as they must move with their widowed mother from the estate on which they grew up and look for a new home. They find themselves on the property of a distant relative, Sir John Middleton, and start on a journey of love, romance and heartbreak.

Nicky Diss, co-founder of Open Bar Theatre said: “We are thrilled to be back in Fuller’s gardens with our first spring show, Sense and Sensibility. 2022 was a huge year for our partnership with more performances in more pubs than ever before and four Off West End award nominations. So we are delighted to be adding another tour to the season and creating a brand new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beautiful romantic comedy.

Ms Diss added: “Four of your favourite Open Bar actors will bring the romance, heartbreak and comedy of Sense and Sensibility to life in your local
pub. What could be better than that?”

Tickets are £18 or £15 for concessions. To book, click here.
