Improvised Jane Austen

Improvised Jane Austen perform their Reader Recommended and PerformINK's critics choice improvised Regency novel for at the renowned iO Improv Theater. Inspired by audience suggestion, the all female cast will conjure a tale on the spot in the style of the beloved 19th-century British novelist.

In each show, they follow a heroine and/or hero through the trials and tribulations of living in turn-of-the 19th century England. Along the way you shall also meet misunderstood suitors, meddling mothers, charming cads, suspicious soldiers, silly sisters, and a wide variety of characters found in the world of Regency England.

IJA leaves the audience laughing and thinking about the status that women (and men) hold in society—both then and now. Their shows comment slyly on modern issues in what seems to be a form that celebrates the past, but actually is fighting for the future.

The Selfish Giant

Description
Told through an ensemble of physical storytellers and geared toward young audiences, The Selfish Giant tells the story of a large lovely garden and the children who loved to play there until the return of the giant who owned the land. Outraged to see the children on his land, the giant builds a big wall to keep them out and puts up a notice that reads: TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED. But without the children, the garden falls into perpetual winter and the Selfish Giant finds himself isolated and all alone.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s short story of the same name, The Selfish Giant illustrates the perils of isolation and the negative consequences of selfishness, but it also teaches us that it is never too late for redemption and for love.
