Mr. Darcy Loses the Plot


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. Our current show Mr. Darcy Loses the Plot is playing to packed houses around the country and garnering great reviews. Have a look at our tour schedule to find a theatre near you.
This autumn we will be working with Time to Read, touring Thrills and Quills, Jane Austen's life in letters to 22 libraries throughout the North West. Join us to see what Jane Austen would have posted on Twitter!

We have a new Shop page where we are selling DVDs of Withering Looks, shot on location in the actual Bronte Parsonage where the Bronte sisters wrote their actual books, actually. This makes a great Christmas gift, so why not order a copy. Theatre tickets also make fab gifts so browse our full schedule here.
