West End gets more Austentatious improv

Published July 5, 2018

Austentatious: The Improvised Jane Austen Novel has today announced five additional dates at the Savoy Theatre over autumn and winter.

Austentatious is a brilliant 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 O Darcy. Expect witty heroines, dashing gents and preposterous plots – swooning guaranteed.

Ed Bartlam of Underbelly Productions said: “Austentatious has been one of the most successful and best-loved shows we’ve worked with at both the Edinburgh Fringe and Southbank Festival, and now we can add London’s West End to that list too.”

Austentatious added: “We are flushed with pleasure to continue our flirtation with the West End for another season! As the nights draw in, there can be no finer place to spend an evening than in the warm embrace of the Savoy Theatre, surrounded by laughter, passion and 1200 of one’s very closest friends.”

You can book tickets through the show’s website.
