Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
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 sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a weekly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 Christmas special. Now Austentatious will be appearing at Theatre Severn to entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure.
 
Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Double 0 Darcy, Game of Scones and The Wickham Man, and no two shows are ever the same. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is a Regency treat guaranteed to delight Austen novices and die-hard fans alike.
 
 “Ridiculously silly…wickedly funny”  The Times 

 “Brilliant…these are comedians at the top of their game”  The Telegraph

 “A joy to behold” - The Guardian
