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". On 2nd Nov we will be at the New Adelphi in Salford with Mr Darcy Loses the Plot, celebrating Jane Austen, Daphne du Maurier, Mrs Gaskell and Beatrix Potter.

To open Suffragette Square in Stockport we will be performing a show about the female Stockport Pioneers the weekend of 17th & 18th Nov. Details to be announced soon.

This year we are writing a new show, a murder mystery set on a train called Strangers on a Train Set. The show will launch in February 2019 so watch this space!
