The second I got the job as the new artistic director at the Independent Bath Literature Festival, I knew I wanted to put Austentatious on the 2014 programme. They were the first thing I thought of. So it makes me especially proud that they were the first event to sell out, almost two weeks ahead of our official programme launch on January 20. Featuring Cariad Lloyd, whose BBC3 pilot has earned her comparisons to Catherine Tate, and Rachel Parris, star of Channel 4’s The IT Crowd, Austentatious is a seven-strong crack team of improvisers who conjure up a “lost” Jane Austen novel out of thin air, based on audience suggestions.
