3 Centuries. 1 Goal.

A glorious tale of struggle and sweat. Heart thumping with oxygenised blood, adrenalin flooding every little bit of me, and every little bit of me, is every little bit of the field in front of me.

It is 1892.

It is 1921.

It is 2018. 

Four women from across the centuries live, breathe, and play football. Whilst each of them face very different obstacles, the possibility that the beautiful game will change their futures - and the world – is tantalisingly close. 

Offside is told through lyrical dialogue, poetry, and punchy prose, placing the audience on the touchline of the game of a lifetime.

CAST ANNOUNCEMENT - Jessica Dennis, Marieme Diouf and Fizz Waller

***** “Brilliant and polished overlapping storytelling”– Broadway Baby

AUSTENTATIOUS - THE IMPROVISED JANE AUSTEN NOVEL

Friday 5 October at 8pm

Tickets - £17.50, concessions - £16

 

Austentatious is saddling the horses for a Grand Tour of the United Kingdom!  

Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers. Every single show the cast conjure up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience. The show comes fresh from six sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a monthly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s death. Now their show will be appearing at two dozen theatres across the country to entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure.  Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark, and no two shows are ever the same. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is a Regency treat guaranteed to delight Austen novices and die-hard fans alike.

★★★★★ “Ridiculouslysilly…wickedly funny” –The Times

★★★★ “A joy to behold” The Guardian

★★★★ “Super smart and terrifically funny” The Scotsman

Aneurin Bevan and Jennie Lee were comrades and flatmates who together fought and preached for socialism as they saw it; he the Tredegar firebrand on the Labour back benches, she the miner’s daughter from Fife who became a Socialist MP before she was old enough to vote.  

Then they were married; he deeply in love with her; she on the rebound from a tragic love affair. Both of them were loved and loathed by their fellow MP’s; he the Bollinger Bolshevik; she his Lady Macbeth, the dark angel at his shoulder. Life together unfolded through the desolate war years, the trials of founding the NHS, and the vicious internal feuds of the 1950’s. But as it did so their love deepened and matured.

This is the story of a partnership that became one of the outstanding political marriages of the twentieth century.
