MR DARCY LOSES THE PLOT

Theatre |
20th October 2016

Thu 20 Oct | 8pm | £16 / £15 Under 16s

Jane Austen sits writing, her quill scurrying across the vellum.

She is dreaming up Darcy, a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Now left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator embroiders her doilies. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a rather different tune.

LipService explore the world of women writers, scribbling in secret or under pseudonyms, squeezing in their writing amongst the hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz and the odd attack of the vapours..

Award-winning comedy duo LipService, makers of Withering Looks and Inspector Norse celebrate Jane Austen’s life 200 years on.

“The glorious, splendidly silly comic duo” The Independent

“The Laurel and Hardy of literary deconstruction” The Guardian
