"What do we really know about Jane Austen?"
If you've followed me with any regularity, then you'll know that I have become something of an Austentatious groupie, more often than not on the last Sunday of the month (and on selected other dates and venues too) you'll find me at the Leicester Square Theatre regaling us with one of Jane Austen's lost novels, improvised on the spot from a title suggested by one of the audience.
One of these days, it will be mine that is picked, I'm sure of it! (I came close a couple of weeks ago though, look!)
January's show saw them welcome back the wonderful Cariad Lloyd after a brief maternity break and take on Lust and Lesbians
, creating something surprisingly moving and dramatic for once, as well as exceedingly funny with its scandalised servants and threesomes in Magaluf. But I'm mainly here to let you know that at least two of the Austentatious
crew have solo shows coming up at the Soho Theatre in March.
