Literary comedy on its way to Cambridge

An award-winning comedy show featuring the great works of Jane Austen is coming to Cambridge later this month. Tickets are available, but expected to sell out fast, for this critically-acclaimed improvised comedy spectacular at the Cambridge Junction.
Austentatious is performed with actors in period costume and with live musical accompaniment and is based on suggestions from the audience, about what takes place during the evening ahead.
The show hinges on a simple idea: audiences are asked to place imaginary titles for a Jane Austen novel into a hat. One is selected at random and immediately turned into an improvised show, which provides hilarity for Austen and improvised comedy fans alike.
After three sell-out Edinburgh Festival runs, the award-winning comedy show has embarked on a second 20-date tour of the UK and will be at the Cambridge venue on Saturday, March 28.
Austentatious also presents the serious side of Austen’s best work with rounded characters, in-depth plotting, and real drama, but with a light-hearted spin - and no two shows are ever the same.
