Austentatious

 

Jane Austen gets an improvised shake up from Edinburgh Fringe performers 

What would happen if Eleanor and Marianne stowed away on a pirate ship and ran away to sea? If Pemberley was invaded by aliens? Or if Mr Darcy formed an 18th century rock group and took on Wickham in an epic, leather-studded Battle of the Bands?

Let your imagination run riot and see what entertaining results emerge when five actors in Regency costume act out a spontaneous Jane Austen-style drama based on audience suggestions.

Expect a mad miscellany of modern culture and Austen-style mannerisms and motifs. Turn up early for a chance to drop your suggestion for the show’s title into a box: previous suggestions have included Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark.

The show’s on 17 October at West Road Concert Hall and tickets are £18.50.
