Welcome to the home of LipService Theatre Company, winners of the Stage Door Award for Excellence at the Manchester Theatre Awards. We wish you all a happy festive season. In 2015 we are celebrating 30 years of LipService. To celebrate we are reviving our cult show Withering Looks. This is running at Sale Waterside Arts centre in January as well as a few other tour dates. We will be continuing the tour of our new show The Picture of Doreen Gray to The Lowry in March and throughout Britain. Looking for ideas for Christmas? Theatre tickets make great gifts, have a look at our tour schedule to book.

"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

"What Lip Service do well is blurring those lines between the professionals and the audience. ‘Come with us’, they seem to say, ‘because we’re not sure what we’re doing but we’re all friends here, right?’ I think they like it here, with their friends, rather than on a pedestal. And for an audience member, it’s pretty joyous being considered one of their friends". Northern Soul

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

-The Independent
