About the Tea

ImageThe Jane Austen High Tea 2019

Impro Theatre Group
"They're back!"

Entertainment sponsored by the William and Karen Lavoie Foundation


A completely improvised play in the style of Jane Austen

Jane Austen wrote only six novels, but her wit and wisdom left readers pining for more. The Impro Theatre Group gives audiences a chance to imagine the other books she might have written. The company starts with audience suggestions and deftly creates a world of love-struck girls, brooding noblemen and charming cads, and although hearts are sure to be broken, true love will win out in the end.
