Mr Darcy Loses the Plot

Welcome to the home of LipService Theatre Company.  We have just opened our new show and it is going down a storm, our favourite feedback so far is "egg layingly funny." Take a look at our tour dates to find a theatre near you. More dates will follow in Spring and Autumn 2017. Our set has a quilted backdrop made by quilting groups and members of the public. Each square depicts a scene from the show. We hope this will grow and grow and if you would like to be involved visit Mr Darcy Loses the Plot Quilting Forum on Facebook and join in the fun. Click on the pic to watch the trailer.


"Britain’s favourite literary lunatics"

-The Independent

"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
