About this event

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Austen plus impro equals a great time out! Join Austenphiles Esther Longhurst and Jessica Messenger on a joyful, 'Certified Boyfriend Friendly' romp through Sense and Spontaneity - the novelist's seventh and previously undiscovered novel... Completely unscripted and improvised, no two shows are alike!

Fall in love with this charming all-ages adventure full of bonnets, balls, romance, and ridiculousness. You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll bring your mum! She'll thank you.
