Austentatious - The Improvised Jane Austen Novel
Suitable for 12+ (contains some strong language)
Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers. The cast conjure up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience. Fresh from six sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s death, they’re now embarking on a nationwide tour.
Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces include Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this Regency treat will delight Austen novices and die-hard fans alike.
