2018 Edinburgh Fringe

Austentatious

  • Comedy (60 minutes)
Austentatious. Image shows from L to R: Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Cariad Lloyd, Charlotte Gittins

After sell-out national tours, a West End run and BBC Radio 4 special, Austentatious returns to the Fringe for its seventh glorious year! Every single day an all-star cast (including Cariad Lloyd, Andrew Hunter Murray, Rachel Parris and more) improvise a brand-new Jane Austen novel based entirely on a single suggestion from the audience. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is Austen as you've never seen her before: award-winning, riotous and unmissable. 'Joyously performed' ***** (Times). 'One of the most enjoyable 60 minutes on the Fringe' **** (Guardian).
