Welcome to the home of LipService Theatre Company.  We are very proud to announce that we have won the Stage Door Award for Excellence at the Manchester Theatre Awards. This is a new award that recognises excellent work and sustainability and we were very delighted to receive it. We are currently performing The Picture of Doreen Gray, a co-production with Oldham Coliseum. The show is touring throughout Britain and tickets are now on sale! Join us in December for a glass of mulled wine and mince pie at Mrs Gaskell's newly renovated house in Manchester. There will be comic encounters with the great lady and her friends, including Charles Dickens and Charlotte Bronte.

"Britain’s favourite literary lunatics"

-The Independent

Doreen Grey

"Laughter is a life-affirming experience, it is a signal of acceptance and positive interaction. It is our primary aim to provide a positive night out at the theatre, which is cathartic and exhilarating."

-Maggie Fox & Sue Ryding Artistic Directors

"Comic invention of a rare and gentle kind, totally good-natured and disarmingly innocent... it’s a unique style of comedy, it’s what they do and they do it superbly."

-Manchester Evening News

"The theatre goers embraced the performers with something that can only be described as affection"

-The Independent
