Nonsense & Sensibility

from Three's Company & Anonymous Is A Woman

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Fringe worth its salt must be in want of a Austen-themed farce.

...well, pop on your bonnets and whip out the barouche-box, because that is exactly what's on offer!

A new corset-splitting comedy that uncovers Austen's long-lost (and strangely palaeontology-themed) theatrical work, from the multi-award-winning team behind Boris: World KingAuditorium, Play On WordsNot The Messiah and Plane Of Existence.


  • Update: after a 100% sell-out, one extra performance has been added, on the 23rd July at 9.30pm, at The Arts Centre Studio. The part of 'Harriet' will be played (as 'Harry') by Yaz Al-Shaater, back on the Buxton stage for the first time since 2012.



Written by Tom Crawshaw

8th July (7pm-7.45pm); 9th & 11th July (8.45pm-9.30pm) and 10th July (3pm-3.45pm)
