Britain’s favourite literary lunatics, are back with their cult Brontë spoof Withering Looks, specially reworked for the 200th anniversary year of Emily’s Bronte's birth.
“It’s a joy – very very funny” The Guardian LipService - Britain’s favourite literary lunatics, are back with their cult Brontë spoof Withering Looks.
Specially reworked for the 200th anniversary year of Emily’s birth, the classic comic duo, Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding, just couldn’t resist the urge to dust off their crinolines, wear flattering bonnets and sit at rain-lashed windows in a pale and decorative manner.
Don’t miss the chance to share in the silliness too! Withering Looks takes an “authentic” look at the lives and works of the Brontë sisters – well, two of them actually, Anne’s just popped out for a cup of sugar. Peopled with many of the characters we know and love, Maggie and Sue move effortlessly from frock to frock coat.
Withering Looks won a Manchester Evening News Theatre Award and the Critics’ award for Comedy at the Edinburgh Festival. LipService recently won the Stage Door Foundation award for Excellence. www.lipservicetheatre.co.uk
