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.
