Welcome

Welcome to the home of LipService Theatre, “Britain’s favourite literary lunatics” - The Independent

LipService have been creating original comedies from a distinctly female perspective since 1985. We have won many awards, most recently the Stage Door Foundation Award for Excellence.

It's the centenary of women's suffrage and we are celebrating some great women writers.
To celebrate Emily Bronte's 200th anniversary we shall be revisiting our award winning play Withering Looks, with a new scene where Mrs Gaskell visits Charlotte to deliver a Manchester tart and a "relief from grief". We are playing for a week at Oldham Coliseum 16th - 20th Oct where there will be some accessible performances including BSL, Audio Description and Dementia Friendly.

This year we are writing a new show, a murder mystery set on a train called Strangers on a Train Set. We shall be giving a "work in progress" sharing at New Adelphi Theatre Salford on 11th October. We'd love to hear your thoughts on what we have created so far, we really value your feedback, so do come and see what we're up to.

We have updated our Privacy Policy, you can read it here
