Improvised comedy play pays tribute to Jane Austen with a new show every night

Austentatious is to tour the UK this Autumn, with tickets on sale from 10am on Thu 8 Mar.

The improvised comedy play sees a cast of distinguished performers, including Joseph Morpurgo, Rachel Parris and Andrew Hunter Murray, deliver a new show every night, based on a title for a 'lost' Jane Austen novel suggested by audience members.

In recent years, the cast have delivered shows like 'Sixth Sense & Sensibility', 'Pride and Extreme Prejudice', 'Mansfield Shark' and 'Steve' (the sequel to Emma), receiving rave reviews and completing six successful Edinburgh Festival runs in that time.

The tour kicks off at Brighton Dome on Sun 23 Sep, running until Fri 2 Nov. Bring show ideas – you never know, it might just happen.
