Classical comedy as Austentatious improv books a novel UK tour

Multi-award-winning improvised comedy troupe Austentatious are setting out from London’s Leicester Square Theatre for an autumn tour this October.

The show will entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure across the country, beginning in Liverpool on October 2 and end in Oxford on October 29.

Austentatious said: ‘We are beyond excited (and fanning ourselves profusely) to be setting off on our very own grand tour, and after such a long period of limited society (we can simply not partake in another of Mr Collins’ quiz nights).

“We cannot wait to finally see our dear friends around the country and laugh, swoon and revel in their most delightful and dashing company!”

The smash-hit Regency comedy romp returns, stuffed with rakish dukes, swooning ladies, and romantic entanglements aplenty. 

Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers.

Every single show the cast conjures up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.

The show comes fresh from multiple sell out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, residencies in London’s West End and at Leicester Square Theatre and a BBC Radio 4 Christmas special.

No two shows are ever the same, with previous ‘lost’ masterpieces including ‘Crazy Rich Georgians’, ‘Double 0 Darcy’ & ‘Game of Scones’. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is a real Regency treat.

The rotating cast is made up of a host of acclaimed comedy talent including: Cariad Lloyd, Rachel ParrisGraham DicksonCharlotte Gittins, Daniel Nils Roberts, Lauren Shearing, Amy Cooke-Hodgson and Joseph Morpurgo
