A Classic All Original Musical Script:

An all-new musical rendition of Jane Austen’s literary masterpiece, “Sense and Sensibility.” With this 1811 romance novel, Austen (1775-1817) propelled herself to a place among the most widely read writers in English literature. And she informs her writing with a spiritual sensibility — what critic Nicholas Seymour calls a “Christian consciousness that knows what sin and virtue are, and how essential spiritual training is.” Her stories are a place where God is present. Austen’s heroes and heroines naturally integrate prayer and reflection as a natural lifestyle. Those who are noble will persevere as they practice fortitude, humility, self-denial and duty. She is not afraid to name and depict virtues and vices — clearly showing the results of each and the consequences of personal responsibilities owned or ignored.

One old definition of spirituality is, “my prayer is what I do.” Austen’s characters reveal the power of action informed by prayer. She creates a universe in which people are what they say and what they do — a universe rooted in a reality much like our own. Words and actions reflect her character’s charms and follies — their integrity or their evil. A prayer written by Austen herself has survived today: “Incline us, oh God, to think humbly of ourselves, to be severe only in the examination of our own conduct, to consider our fellow creatures with kindness, and to judge all they say and do with that charity which we would desire from them ourselves.”
