 "Countless laughs...whimsical homage to the illustrious author." — Chicago Reader

Chicago Reader Recommended and a PerformInk Critic's Pick, Improvised Jane Austen performs on four Sundays this fall at the Blackout Cabaret in Piper's Alley. Starting off the holiday theater season early, the long-running all-female comedy team makes merry for Michaelmas, conjuring a tale on the spot in the style of the beloved 19th-century novelist. Headstrong heroines, cads and suitors, meddling mothers and merry misadventures culminate in a properly absurd British conclusion.

"Improvised Jane Austen is one of the best improv teams in Chicago, a must-see" — Antoine McKay (Second City Alumni)

Falling on September 29th this year, Michaelmas is the feast of St. Michael, a traditional harvest festival referenced in several of Jane Austen's works. In the Regency Era, the holiday saw blackberry pies and fattened roast geese at banquets and balls, as tenant farmers paid rent and manor lords filled their coffers. The soiree-loving Ladies of IJA are delighted to make merry on Michaelmas once more! 

"These women took it, owned it and created some really funny and touching moments....an evening of silliness and indulgence....[they] make running amok look like delicious fun." — PerformInk Chicago
