Withering Looks

The Arts Centre


LipService present Withering Looks at the Rose Theatre. 

Tickets £12.50 / £10.50 concessions.

LipService, Britain’s favourite literary lunatics, are 25 this season!

As part of their celebrations, Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding reprise their cult Bronte spoof Withering Looks. They could hardly turn down this opportunity to dust off their crinolines, wear flattering bonnets and sit at rained-lashed windows in a pale and decorative manner.

Withering Looks takes an “authentic” look at the lives and works of the Bronte 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 has won a Manchester Evening News Theatre Award and the Critics Award for Comedy at the Edinburgh Festival.

“Cancel all other engagements for the glorious LipService” – The Independent.

“It’s a joy… very, very funny” – The Guardian.
