LipService Theatre Company - award winning comedy duo!

Jane Austen sits writing, her quill scurrying across the vellum. She is dreaming up Darcy, a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Mr Darcy is left dangling. Left to his own devices he embroiders his own storyline while his creator embroiders her doilies. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a different tune.

LipService explore the world of women writers, scribbling in secret or under pseudonyms, squeezing in their writing amongst the hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz and having the vapours.

Award-winning comedy duo LipService, makers of Withering Looks and Inspector Norse celebrate Jane Austen’s life 200 years on.

“The glorious, splendidly silly comic duo” The Independent
“The Laurel and Hardy of literary deconstruction” The Guardian
