Quirky, Great acting, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You're a fan of Jane Austen and you like the unexpected. It's a light-hearted, entertaining parody with many laugh out loud moments.

Don't see it if You prefer to know the plot before you see a show. It's improv, so you won't know how the story is going to play out as it goes on.

Cliched, Funny, Fluffy, Overrated, Quirky

See it if You like Victorian style talking, clothes in a humorous setting with the expectation that some of the jokes would fall flat

Don't see it if You don't like them not take plot suggestions like most improv do, so felt like they just get the title to work around their planned script Read more

For a previous production

If the plot became unnecessarily tangled at times, that is hardly surprising given the different contributors chipping in. It is not the slickest of dramas and maybe that is part of the fun.
