It is a truth universally acknowledged… that Austentatious is an unforgettable show.
The spontaneous and hilarious improvised Jane Austen novel Austentatious transfers to the Fortune Theatre to take the West End by storm yet again.
The social event of the season, 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. Taking the UK by storm over the past few year, Austentatious tickets are always in high demand, whether it be at the Fringe, on tour or here in London.
Whether you’ve read all of Austen’s works or none of them, this hilarious show will be a totally new experience for every audience member. 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.
Starting out in a London pub in 2011, Austentatious has toured the country, growing to become one of the most successful and best-loved shows for six consecutive sell-out years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and, recently, on London’s South Bank. The show recorded a one-off special for BBC Radio 4 in the summer, and made its West End debut at the Piccadilly Theatre, before transferring to the Fortune Theatre in its biggest production ever.
Austentatious stars a sharp-witted and hilarious company including Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Andrew Hunter Murray, Cariad Lloyd, Charlotte Gittins, Daniel Nils Roberts, Graham Dickson, Joseph Morpurgo and Rachel Parris.
