About AustentatiousAustentatious has a long and respectable history, starting back in 2011. It entered society - or to you and I, the theatre scene - in London before travelling up to Edinburgh, where it received rave reviews and played to sold-out crowds. Since 2017 it has held Monday night residencies at various West End theatres, and it is the talk of all the most influential newspapers: The Times called it a “potboiler of a parody, joyously performed” in their five-star review.
Cast of AustentatiousAustentatious is currently performed by a cast of six, including original members and creators Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Joseph Morpurgo and Rachel Parris (Late Night Mash). Other members of the company include award-winning comedian, actress and Griefcast podcast host Cariad Lloyd; Charlotte Gittins; Lauren Shearing; Daniel Nils Roberts; and Graham Dickson.
The group pull on their petticoats, dust off their cravats and practice their best stiff upper lip before every performance to bring you the very best madcap improv you could ask for.
