Review: Austentatious, Leicester Square Theatre

“I want to see you do the worm”

If you haven’t heard of them, Austentatious are a cracking improv troupe who, having taken title suggestions from the audience, improvise an “eloquent but irreverent” tale in the style of Jane Austen. This festive iteration saw the group tackle Phil and Fallibility, a tale of haughty cousins, French speakeasys, complex welcoming hand gestures and communication channels to the council…it’s all a lot funnier in the watching of it obviously, in fact it is downright hilarious and a definite recommendation for a fun night out that won’t break the bank or keep you up too late. 

Running time: 1 hour
