Austentatious to bring Jane Austen novel to life at Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds.

Archant

Austentatious, an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers, is coming to the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds on Wednesday November 8.

For each show the cast conjures up a new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.

Fresh from six sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a monthly residency in London’s Leicester Square and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s death, prepare to be entertained and astonished 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.

The show starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from www.theatreroyal.org or by calling the box office on 01284 769505.
