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 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 at two dozen theatres across the country to entertain and astonish audiences 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.

Austentatious said:“We are thrilled to be travelling the length and breadth of the country, rediscovering the lost classics Austen wrote and promptly forgot about. We love and admire Jane’s works and the public deserve an intimate acquaintance with them, particularly the very prescient ones about Donald Trump.”
Austentatious is performed by:
Andrew Hunter Murray
Daniel Nils Roberts
Line-up varies. Each show stars 5-6 members of the cast.
Spark's magic rhymes can turn anything into anything.
He'll turn the bogeys up his nose into some pink ribbons and bows. He'll make a gorgeous high heeled shoe out of a pile of donkey poo...
However, something terrible begins to happen in the enchanted forest. Here be wasps,were wolves and wily wickedness!
Maybe not even Spark's spells will be enough to stop a strange new power threatening the woods and everyone in them...
With lyrics,laughs and lots of joining in, poet Dommy B needs your help to save the day!
