Austentatious – The Improvised Jane Austen Novel

Date:Wed 17 Oct
Time:7pm doors
Venue:West Road Concert Hall
Price:£18.50 / £17 cons


Austentatious is saddling the horses for a Grand Tour of the United Kingdom!
Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers. Every single show the cast conjure up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.
The show comes fresh from six sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a monthly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s death. Now their show will be appearing at theatres across the country to entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure.
Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark, 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 said:
“We are thrilled to be travelling the length and breadth of the country, rediscovering the lost classics Austen wrote and promptly forgot about. We love and admire Jane’s works and the public deserve an intimate acquaintance with them, particularly the very prescient ones about Donald Trump.”  
Austentatious is performed by:

  • Rachel Parris
  • Joseph Morpurgo
  • Amy Cooke-Hodgson
  • Andrew Hunter Murray
  • Cariad Lloyd
  • Charlotte Gittins
  • Daniel Nils Roberts
  • Graham Dickson
