Austen Translation

Jet City Improv, in partnership with Book-It Repertory Theatre, is proud to announce the triumphant return of the smash hit that stole Seattle’s heart in 2013.

While faithful readers of Jane Austen are sure to delight in the country dances, carriage rides, and turns about the room in this unscripted romance, beloved characters like Mr. Darcy or Emma Woodhouse will be nowhere in sight. Instead, a cast of trained improvisational actors create an all-new tale full of stolen glances, tantalizing secrets, and a love story that will leave you breathless.

What people are saying:

Love Jane Austen? Seattle improv show may be your cup of tea” – Misha Berson, the Seattle Times (2013)

Thursdays and Fridays at 8pm, Dec 1 – 23, 2016

Advance tickets are $10 on Thursdays, $12-$15 on Fridays plus a $2 service fee. Tickets at the door are $15-$18. Discounts are available for students (with ID) and seniors over 55 (also with ID), military personnel and TPS members.

About Jet City Improv Presents

Austen Translation is a returning favorite in Jet City Improv’s line of improvised plays. Unlike most short-form improv formats that involve improvisers switching from game to game and creating brand new scenes every time, Jet City Improv Presents is an ongoing series of longform improv shows that present one or many stories around one cohesive theme. Improv still lies at the heart of each show, and every story is created based on unique suggestions and input every night. So yes, even though Jet City Improv Presents shows have sets and costumes and some thematic rules, the major role of the audience guarantees that no two performances are ever alike.
