Austentatious extends West End run

Following its smash-hit run this year, Austentatious: The Improvised Jane Austen Novel will extend its run in Theatreland, with three performances announced at the Savoy Theatre this Spring.

The show is set to play the final date of its original West End run at the Piccadilly Theatre on Tuesday (13 February). It will then play at the Savoy Theatre on the Sundays of 18 March, 15 April and 20 May.

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.

The cast of Austentatious commented: “We are honoured to receive such a flattering invitation! Nothing could be more pleasing to us than a small, intimate gathering of friends, observed by 1200 more, slightly more distant (but no less dear) friends.”

You can book tickets through the show’s website.
