Classic literature meets theatre with a healthy dose of comedy as Edinburgh hit Austentatious comes to Lincoln Performing Arts Centre this weekend.

After four sell-out Edinburgh Fringe runs, three sell-out national tours and a Chortle Award in 2014 for Best Character, Improv or Sketch Group, the critically acclaimed improvised comedy show is now gracing stages across UK.

Join the all-star cast as they improvise a brand new Jane Austen work before your very eyes, based upon a single suggestion

As audience members take to their seats, they are encouraged to write the titles of imaginary Austen novels, one of which is selected – entirely at random – and immediately performed

Presented in full period costume with live musical accompaniment, Austentatious is a hilarious Regency treat.

Past ‘lost’ masterpieces include Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double O Darcy and Mansfield Shark .

Featuring Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees Cariad Lloyd and Joseph Morpurgo, Austentatious is at Lincoln Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, November 19 at 8pm.

Tickets are £13 (£10 NUS and under-26) on 01522 837600 or www.lpac.co.uk
