Withering Looks

Withering Looks

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, adding some new scenes. We will be at Harrogate Theatre on July  13th with further dates later in the year. We have also created a long awaited souvenir tea towel featuring The Blasted Stump a previously undiscovered poem possibly attributed to Emily, but possibly not! Order here

Also for sale is our Withering Looks DVD, shot on location in the actual Bronte Parsonage where the Bronte sisters wrote their actual books, actually. Order a copy here.

This year we are writing a new show, a murder mystery set on a train. We shall be giving a "work in progress" sharing at Oldham Library in the autumn and we will be touring from late February 2019, so watch this space!
