30th anniversary season

Welcome to the home of LipService Theatre Company. This year we are celebrating 30 years of LipService. In February we have our last 5 performances of The Picture of Doreen Gray, finishing at Nottingham Playhouse on 26th Feb. We will be collaborating with Engine House on a new production of Snow White by Mike Kenny, suitable for ages 4+ so do borrow a small child and come along. At the end of the month we are privileged to be filming in the Bronte Parsonage, making a special drama documentary for the Bronte200 festival. In June we are at Manchester Histories Festival with two special shows and in the autumn we launch a new touring show about Jane Austen. Phew!

"Britain’s favourite literary lunatics"

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
