It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a Canberran in possession of a busy life, must be in want of a laugh. Under the Bonnet delivers a tongue-in-cheek comedy set in the world as Jane Austen knew it. Discover a new Austen classic full to the brim of Regency-era social mores, elegance and wit brought to you by the joyful players of Lightbulb. Take a wild romp with this unscripted comedy of manners full of twists and turns spontaneously crafted over dinner parties, balls and picnics. From the performers who brought you “Shakespeare: Off the Cuff” Lightbulb dives into a new genre for their unscripted magic. Known for their unique flavour of warm, funny and surprising moments, this comedy troupe creates stories on the spot and builds characters with depth and humour. They’ve performed in comedy festivals across Australia and internationally, and love bringing the thrill of on-the-spot comedy to their audiences. “Lightbulb Improv’s performers are naturally comical, with excellent timing. Performers inhabited characters intuitively, as though born to them, and responded to one another at a second’s notice.” (BMA – May 2021 “The Door”) Entry Cost Adult $29 - plus $5.95 booking fee per transaction (bookings of 4+ are $22 per ticket) Concession $25 - concession under 27 years plus $5.95 booking fee per transaction Group $22 - Groups of 4 or more. plus $5.95 booking fee per transaction
