I am looking for scripts of various Austen stories, specifically Sense and Sensibility. Would you have any suggestions for finding some? I have searched a lot to find the scripts but did not find any relevant information. Do you know some good place to find Jane Austen plays? Please share the information.

    Hi Anna,
    Jane Austen 16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817 was an English writer who mostly wrote romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics.
    There is a stage version of Sense and Sensibility adapted from the original Jane Austin book by Pamela Whalan. She was commissioned by the international Jane Austin Society to bring all seven of her famous novels to the stage. I am not sure which publisher carries this version.

    There is another version dramatized by Ashley J. Barnard. This one is published by Dramatic Publishing. You can find them at their website - dramaticpublishing.com

    There is also a play called \"Sensibility and Sense\" by Richard Nelson, which may or may not be a version of Jane Austin's book. This one is published by Broadway Play Publishing. Their website is broadwayplaypubl.com

    Hope that helps. Best of luck with your play
