Jane Austen famously wrote six novels – or did she?  

Undoubtedly one of the most talked-about shows on the improvised comedy circuit, Austentatious: An Improvised Novel is an hour-long comedy play spun in the inimitable style of Jane Austen – and based entirely on audience suggestions.


“highly recommended” - The Times


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 ‘cello accompaniment, Austentatious is an immersive and hilarious treat for fans of Austen and improvised comedy alike.

The show also plays regularly across the UK, and the cast also run an experimental night of non-Austen themed improv at The Wheatsheaf, Rathbone Place. Head to the Shows page for our upcoming dates.
