The Improvised Jane Austen Novel

★★★★★ 'Ridiculously silly…wickedly funny' The Times

Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers. Every single show the cast conjure up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.

The show comes fresh from six sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a monthly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s death. 

Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark, and no two shows are ever the same. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is a Regency treat guaranteed to delight Austen novices and die-hard fans alike.

Austentatious is performed by:
Amy Cooke-Hodgson
Andrew Hunter Murray
Cariad Lloyd
Charlotte Gittins
Daniel Nils Roberts
Graham Dickson
Joseph Morpurgo
Rachel Parris

Line-up varies. Each show stars 5-6 members of the cast
