After sell-out national tours, a West End run and 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). 2019 Recommended

There have been several improv troupes that have taken the idea of making up a story based on a famous work: there are shows based on Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, etc, but this show - creating Jane Austen novels based on titles suggested by the audience - is still the best.
