Press your breeches, bow your bonnets and head for London, as we are delighted to announce that we are extending our time in the West End. After a wonderful jaunt this winter and two sell-out shows, we are transferring to The Savoy Theatre, for there is nowhere quite like London in the spring!
We are so looking forward to seeing you! Be sure to book without delay or Mrs. Bennet will be bound to have something to say about it…
Can’t get enough of the Austentatious players? Dying to know what we’re all up to?
Well, it’s your lucky day – here’s all the latest activity from our magnificent eight:
Miss Amy Cooke-Hodgson has been wearing a boiler suit and wrangling zombies for a new comedy film – Z-Hab (out very soon), and in the mean time she guest appears in Off the Top, an improvised cabaret show, alongside Jason Kravits off-Broadway this month.
Mr Andrew Hunter Murray can be seen weekly in the latest series of satirical juggernaut The Mash Report on BBC 2, and is preparing to leap into action on tour with fact-toting gallants No Such Thing As A Fish.
Our dear Lady Cariad Lloyd continues her series of melancholy and yet surprisingly cheery chats about death with various comedian of note. You can listen to these marvellous and touching talks here.
Miss Charlotte Gittins is working behind the scenes on a major documentary, travelling across Germany, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Russia. Let us hope she avoids Napoleon’s forces on her travels.
Mr Daniel Nils Roberts recently directed, edited and lent his voice to a short documentary about universal languages for BBC online – “Should We All Write In Chinese?” We’re not sure quite what Jane would think about that idea…
Mr Graham Dickson is developing a brand new solo Edinburgh Fringe show for 2018, whilst jetting off to LA for pilot season (and a healthy dose of improv performances at iO West and UCB). You can catch him in London weekly with the Free Association, who will likewise wend their way to Scotland in August.
Mr Joseph Morpurgo’s acclaimed solo show Hammerhead is embarking on tour around the UK in May and June, and if you are stuck in our smoggy capital it will also return to the Soho Theatre for a week-long residency.
Miss Rachel Parris is currently spreading satire like wildfire, in The Mash Report, and she will be touring the land in Spring with her solo comedy venture, Keynote, for which tickets are available now!
Our first jaunt in the West End’s capacious Piccadilly Theatre took place before Christmas, and now we are set to tread the hallowed boards for a second time, on Tuesday 23rd January. We can scarcely wait!
Last month’s show saw wassailing regency carol singers hailing the crowds as they streamed in from Piccadilly Circus, passing under our name in lights on the building exterior, before our brand new secret set was unveiled from within its mysterious packing crate.
The show itself was a romping tale of marital estrangement, and youthful yearning, taking in locations as varied as a beachside pier, a twilit graveyard, a coastal B&B and Ibiza. Exactly as Jane herself would have written it.
All in all it was an utter delight to transfigure our fanciful show into a West End spectacular, replete with some brand new Georgian costumes that would make even Darcy preen with pride, a pair of transcendent musicians in accompaniment, two halves of intrigue and romance, and our very own delightful drawing room. Not to mention a quite enchanting audience packing out the three sweeping tiers of the playhouse. It wasn’t just fun and exhilarating, but emotional too. So, overwhelmed and elated, we naturally want nothing more than to do it all again.
If you hurry there are a handful of tickets available for January’s show, and a handful more for February, and we are pleased to say that if you keep your eyes peeled we will shortly be able to announce the next three months after that. You didn’t think we’d have quite this much fun and not come back, did you?
