Withering Looks

LipService, Britain’s favourite literary lunatics, celebrate 25 years since the launch of their multi award-winning cult show Withering Looks.

To mark this auspicious occasion Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding 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.
