Austentatious: Jane Austen (But Not As We Know Her)

Thu 27th April 2017
8.30pm - 9.30pm
Stratford Artshouse

After a brilliantly successful evening at last year’s Festival, we welcome back the stars of the Edinburgh Fringe, who will act out an entirely improvised comedy play in the style of the witty Jane Austen, based on nothing more than a title from the audience. A seasoned cast, led by one of Sandi Toksvig’s QI Elves, present an irreverent take on the works of Britain’s best-loved novelist, in her bicentenary year, performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment.
