It is a truth universally acknowledged, that Austenatious is one of the smartest and funniest improv shows out there
Improv gets a bad rap in this country, but anyone who dismisses the genre clearly hasn't seen Austentatious. This highly impressive troupe perform a completely improvised Jane Austen novel, complete with period dress and cello accompaniment, with marvellous results. They're all hugely talented performers, able to keep the gag rate high and the made-up story rolicking along.
'Austentatious' plays on Mondays at Fortune Theatre in Summer 2019.

Super boring and no improv! Not sure why the audience was supposed to come up with the title of a Jane Austin novel as they ended up using their own practiced title and sketches... why bother 'attempting to involve the audience' if you end up not including the audience or their suggestions at all. Everything felt rehearsed, practiced, etc and nothing was spontaneous. Was very much looking forward to the show and left super disappointed! Had to leave before the end of the show - it was so boring :(
