This performance has been rescheduled from Sun 11 Sep 2021.

Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring 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 sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a weekly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 Christmas special.

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.
