‘Austen Found: The Undiscovered Musicals of Jane Austen’ is just over an hour of delightful semi-Victorian banter, hilariously unscripted dialogue and very attractive bonnets. Improv comedy at it’s finest.
The show began with an interactive element that involved the audience picking the name of the show and the characters last names. The lovely Dianne Curlybottom became the main protagonist in our own tale of ‘Envy & Elegance’.
Over the course of the hour we watched as the characters interacted, broke out in song and occasionally forgot whom they were supposed to be playing. The little mistakes and out-of-character outbursts made the show that much more enjoyable and familiar.
Led by New Zealand comedienne Penny Ashton the four strong Improv Troupe, ConArtists, presented an hour of good old-fashioned comedy. The interactive element to the performance meant that the audience was never once bored or unengaged. A delightful way to spend an evening.
