Directed By                Lauren DeLeon

Austentation is a Senior Project written by Virginia Edinger, directed by Lauren DeLeon, with Brian Bowyer as an actor and fight director. This production, a take on traditional Comedy of Manners with a generous helping of Jane Austen and a dash of modern sensibility, combines the best of all worlds. Though, don’t be complacent, this is not your average comedy of manners. Filled with romance, mistaken identity, and general hijinks, this production explores a myriad of historic as well as timely subject matter ranging from societal expectation to class and gender politics. Through it all, Austentation welcomes the audience to a world rarely seen on Purchase College stages.
