Sense and Spontaneity

Sense and Spontaneity - Esther Longhurst and Jessica Messenger

Sense and Spontaneity – Esther Longhurst and Jessica Messenger

I saw the last performance of Sense and Spontaneity (I know no good if you then write a review, but now I don’t feel so bad about taking so long to write this review!)

This show was hilarious – the two actors were brilliant (so quick witted).  With a series of hats and bonnets they created various different characters – you know a Miss Bates, a Mr Darcy, a Mr Collins, etc. There was much tea drinking and Austen-like dialogue. I would say the plot and action owes more to Austen film adaptations than the novels, but who doesn’t love an Austen adaptation? This was a fast-paced romp, which the actors seemed to enjoy as much as the audience and I would definitely see it again (well a different version as it is improvisation after all).
