About the Show


Each week the Chicago Reader Recommended, PerformInk’s Critics’ Pick, Improvised Jane Austen will take an audience suggestion to create a full length tale in the style of the beloved 19th century author. You’ll be properly introduced to headstrong heroines, meddling mothers, snooty suitors, and charming cads. They will all emerge to navigate romance and Regency-era misadventure, to eventually reach a proper British conclusion!

“The ladies in this group were experts at the slow burn, and at picking apart the structure of Austen’s stories in ways that would please both fans and critics of the subject matter. By the end of their long-form set, they had created a sort of chaos and silliness that was both a tribute to and a parody of the author.” – Third Coast Review
“…countless laughs…whimsical homage to the illustrious author.” — Chicago Reader

“Improvised Jane Austen is one of the best improv teams in Chicago, a must-see”, says Second City Alum Antoine McKay.

“…these women took it, owned it and created some really funny and touching moments….an evening of silliness and indulgence….make running amok look like delicious fun.” — PerformInk Chicago
