Award-winning comedy duo LipService celebrate the 200th commemoration year of Jane Austen with their affectionately irreverent tribute.

Jane Austen 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. Mr Darcy is left dangling. Left to his own devices he embroiders his own storyline while his creator stitches her quilt. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a 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 having the vapours.

  • “On leaving the venue you feel a hundred times more invigorated than when you went in, with the chuckle muscles positively aching at the glorious lunacy.”
