It's hard to believe that the author of such chilling affairs as The Haunting of Hill House and "The Lottery" could be so funny, but trust me: this warm and wacky memoir is full of genuine laughs. It's a charmingly old-fashioned tale of raising a passel of hellions in semi-rural midcentury America.
Jane Austen wrote only six novels, but her wit and wisdom left readers pining for more. Impro Theatre's Jane Austen UnScripted gives audiences a chance to imagine the other books she might have written. The company deftly creates a world of love-struck girls, brooding noblemen and charming cads, and although hearts are sure to be broken, true love will win out in the end. Members of the cast will perform in costume, improvising a brief 'playlet' in the style of Austen, then answering questions from the audience.
“One of the funniest evenings in town…An amazing comedy troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.”
-Los Angeles Times Magazine
“SENSATIONAL…smash hit…ingenuity, imagination, and hilarity… improv artists at the top of their field… MUST SEE.”
“Impro Theatre's gift lies in far more than improv's expected one-liners and zingers -rather, their gift is the more subtle and complex art of storytelling…Austen would be pleased, indeed.”
