Austentatious is saddling the horses for a Grand Tour of the United Kingdom!
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 theatres across the country 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.

Austentatious said: “We are beyond delighted to be back on the road, and can’t wait to shine a spotlight on some of Austen’s lesser-known ‘classics’ – from Empire Line of Duty to Bennet Like Beckham. Prepare the barouche!”
Austentatious is performed by:
Andrew Hunter Murray
Daniel Nils Roberts
Line-up varies. Each show stars 5-6 members of the cast.
