The play was originally performed by nine actors with the following doubling, but could as easily suit a larger company.
Margaret Dashwood/Lucy Steele
Fanny Dashwood/Mrs Jennings
Mrs Dashwood/Mrs Palmer/Miss Grey
Edward Ferrars/Robert Ferrars/Mr Palmer
Sir John/Mr Dashwood/Thomas/Mr Perks/Doctor
Other servants, gossips and ball attendees can be played by members of the company.
