Review: Austentatious, Leicester Square

“Look at his fine undercarriage”

It’s practically a monthly pilgrimage now, going to the Leicester Square Theatre to see Austentatious and as ever, it was a genius piece of improvised Austen-related shenanigans. Picking up on the Hallowe’en theme, we were treated to The Invasion of the Bonnet-Snatchers, and again as ever, it’s nigh on impossible to describe how thrilling it is see the company of six devise and dance around each other with such skill, picking up story strands and comic tidbits and threading them throughout the hour with seemingly effortless grace. And above all, they make you laugh, oh so much.
