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 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 sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a weekly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 Christmas special. Now Austentatious will be appearing at theatres across the country to entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure.

Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Double 0 DarcyGame 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. 

Age Recommendation: 12+

Austentatious said:

“We are beyond delighted to be back on the road, and can’t wait to shine a spotlight on some of Austen’s lesser-known ‘classics' - from Empire Line of Duty to Bennet Like Beckham. Prepare the barouche!"

Tickets: £19.50

A £1 ticket levy is included in all stated ticket prices.
