Austentatious


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

The show comes fresh from six sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a monthly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s death. Now their show will be appearing in Oxford to entertain and astonish you in equal measure.

Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark, 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.

To add to the improvised nature, different members of the cast are on stage every night. So, although we can't say exactly who will be performing, it'll be a selection of..

Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Andrew Hunter Murray (No Such Thing As A Fish), Cariad Lloyd (QI), Charlotte Gittins, Daniel Nils Roberts, Graham Dickson, Joseph Morpurgo, Rachel Parris (The Mash Report).

Duration: 1 hour 50mins with interval
