~ See Austentatious at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 ~
is an entirely improvised comedy play in the style of the wondrous & witty Jane Austen, based on nothing more than a title from the audience.
“Joyously performed” – The Times
Be it ‘Mansfield Shark’, ‘Darcy & Hutch’ or ‘I know what you did last season’, no two shows are ever the same. A seasoned cast presents an eloquent, irreverent, 100% improvised take on the works of Britain’s best-loved novelist. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment.
Fresh from winning a Chortle award, a second sell-out national tour and appearances on BBC Radio 2 & Radio 4 Extra, Austentatious is an unmissable & uproarious show, guaranteed to delight.
★★★★★ – Chortle
Austentatious have two monthly residencies in London: The Old Queens Head, Essex Road, and the Leicester Square Theatre. The show also plays regularly across the UK, and the cast runs an experimental night of non-Austen themed improv at The Wheatsheaf, Rathbone Place. Head to the Shows page for our upcoming dates.
“One of the most enjoyable 60 minutes
on the Fringe” – The Guardian
