    Addicted to Darcy? Bonkers for Big Balls? Lost all Sense and Sensibility? Well put down your cross stitching and get ready to enjoy an entirely improvised musical in the style of Jane Austen. You saw their videos during the COVID lockdown, now see them in person.

    Arts on Tour favourite Penny Ashton (Olive Copperbottom, Promise and Promiscuity, Hot Pink Bits) is back, with her most excellently accomplished friends! World Famous hobbit Lori Dungey (LOTR, Xena) and twinkle fingers Jason Smith (Emmy award winning musical maestro and Lucy Lawless collaborator) will use your suggestions and spin instant literary magic as they swoon, romp and pianoforte.
