Austentatious are saddling the horses to once more visit Oxford! After four sell-out Edinburgh Fringe runs and three sell-out national tours, the award-winning and critically acclaimed improvised comedy show will be gracing the stage at the Oxford Festival of the Arts 2017.
Join the all-star cast as they improvise a brand new Jane Austen work before your very eyes, based upon a single suggestion. As audience members take to their seats, they are encouraged to write the titles of imaginary Austen novels, one of which is selected – entirely at random – and immediately performed. Presented in full period costume with live musical accompaniment, Austentatious is a hilarious Regency treat, not to be missed!
Past ‘lost’ masterpieces include Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark. No two shows are ever the same!
Following appearances on Absolute Radio, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 4 Extra, a sell-out residency at London’s Leicester Square Theatre, and a Chortle Award for ‘Best Character, Improv or Sketch Group’ in 2014, Austentatious are thrilled to be readying the carriage once more!
