The classic story from Jane Austen about the Dashwood sisters and their family. When their father dies, they leave the only life they knew. More…
From the show:
When Mr. Dashwood dies, he leaves his entire fortune to his only son, leaving his wife and three daughters with almost nothing. Elinor, the eldest daughter, takes responsibility for the family as they move to the countryside where they form new friendships, loves, and face heartbreaks. A lively, funny, and moving story for everyone, complete with regency dancing, singing, and more.
