Austentatious takes the hallmarks of Austen's novels and muddles them together into a improvised theatre show. Expect the unexpected as a cast of eight whipsmart comic performers magic up a 'lost' novel on the spot. It's up to the audience to suggest titles, then watch as a spontaneous show develops, drawing in the best-loved elements Jane Austen's prose. Previous carnations of the story have included Mansfield Shark, Double 0 Darcy and The Sixth Sense and Sensibility.
Live musical accompaniment and all the pomp and frills of Regency dress accompany the comedy and chaos.
The show is a stalwart of the Edinburgh Fringe, which can now be enjoyed at the Savoy Theatre (18 March, 15 April, 20 May, 17 June and 8 July).
