Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers. Every single show the cast conjures up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.
The show comes fresh from multiple sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a weekly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 Christmas special. Now Austentatious will be appearing at theatres across the UK to entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure.
Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Double 0 Darcy, Game of Scones and The Wickham Man, 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 - An Improvised Jane Austen Novel
A six-piece comedy theatre ensemble whose cast includes Cariad Lloyd (Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee 2011), Rachel Parris (Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year Finalist 2011), Amy Cooke-Hodgson (Olivier Award winning La Boheme, Showstopper!), Andrew Murray (Private Eye), Graham Dickson (The Messiah, Scooter Thomas, The Pride), and Joseph Morpurgo (Monkey Toast). They performed their theatrical delights to packed out houses in their fair Scottish lands, and won themselves another collection of five and four star reviews, as The Guardian claimed 'one of the most enjoyable 60 mins on the fringe'.
