Austentatious: An Improvised Jane Austen Novel hits the West End for three dates only: Tuesdays 5th December, 23rd January & 13th February at the Piccadilly Theatre. Tickets on sale Thursday 14th September
Follows a sold-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe & a major UK tour.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that anyone in possession of wit and good taste must be in want of great entertainment…
Join Austentatious for the social event of the season, as they take London’s West End by storm.
Austentatious is an entirely improvised comedy play, starring a cast of the country’s sharpest comic performers, who conjure up a ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience. Whether you’ve read all of Austen’s works or none of them, this hilarious show will be a totally new experience.
Performed in full Regency costume with live musical accompaniment, no two shows are ever the same. Previous ’lost‘ masterpieces include The Sixth Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Shark and Double 0 Darcy. Expect witty heroines, dashing gents and preposterous plots. Swooning guaranteed.
Underbelly Productions’ Ed Bartlam said: “Austentatious has been one of the most successful and best-loved shows we’ve worked with in both Edinburgh and on the South Bank in recent years, so it’s a huge privilege to be able to bring them to a West End audience for the first time. It’s their biggest production ever but, as the great lady herself said: ‘One cannot have too large a party’, so bring it on.”
Austentatious said: “Where better to spend the night with one’s most favourite and wittiest friends than at the Piccadilly Theatre? Let literary mischief commence...”
Austentatious’ West End shows will coincide with their national tour, running from 22 September – 23 November 2017. Information: www.austentatiousimpro.com
