AUSTENTATIOUS has extended its run at the Savoy Theatre. As well as April 15 and May 20, it will now also play on June 17 and July 8, 2018.

Ed Bartlam of Underbelly Productions said:

“The West End audience simply can’t get enough of Austentatious’ hilariously unique, Jane Austen-inspired improvisation, so we’ve had to add another two dates to their impressive run at The Savoy. It’s been one of the most successful and best-loved shows we’ve worked with at both the Edinburgh Fringe and Southbank Festival, and now it’s proving itself a huge success in London’s West End too.”

Austentatious added:

“We are honoured to receive such a flattering invitation to extend our West End residency! Nothing could be more pleasing to us than a small, intimate gathering of friends, observed by 1200 more, slightly more distant (but no less dear) friends.”

Previously Posted: Due to popular demand Austentatious is extending its West End run. Following the February 13 date at the Piccadilly Theatre, it will transfer to the Savoy Theatre, where it will play on Sundays March 18, April 15 and May 20, 2018.

Austentatious is an entirely improvised comedy play, starring a cast of the country’s sharpest comic performers, who conjure up a ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience. Whether you’ve read all of Austen’s works or none of them, this hilarious show will be a totally new experience.

Performed in full Regency costume with live musical accompaniment, no two shows are ever the same. Previous ’lost‘ masterpieces include The Sixth Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Shark and Double 0 Darcy. Expect witty heroines, dashing gents and preposterous plots. Swooning guaranteed.

Ed Bartlam of Underbelly Productions said:

“The West End audience has gone positively wild for Austentatious, so it’s an absolute joy to extend the run with these three additional dates at The Savoy. It’s been one of the most successful and best-loved shows we’ve worked with at both the Edinburgh Fringe and Southbank Festival, and now London’s West End has joined the Austentatious fan club too.”

Austentatious added: “We are honoured to receive such a flattering invitation! Nothing could be more pleasing to us than a small, intimate gathering of friends, observed by 1200 more, slightly more distant (but no less dear) friends.”

Austentatious added is performed by Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Andrew Hunter, Cariad Lloyd, Charlotte Gittins, Daniel Nils Roberts, Graham Dickson, Joseph Morpurgo and Rachel Parris.
