LipService Theatre returns with live streaming event as part of PAC programme

Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) favourites LipService Theatre will present a live stream of their award-winning comedy Withering Looks as part of the venue’s ongoing series of online events in lockdown.

Saturday, 20th March 2021, 4:35 pm
Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding from LipService Theatre will bring their comedy Withering Looks to your screens.

Tickets are selling fast, going out to audiences as far afield as Belgium, as customers race to snap up tickets for this popular theatre company’s latest online offering.

This latest performance piece by ‘Britain’s favourite literary lunatics’, commissioned by the Bronte Parsonage Museum, sees LipService Theatre perform scenes from Withering Looks which were “filmed in the actual parsonage where the Bronte sisters wrote their actual books actually!”

This online event, streamed via Zoom on Thursday, April 22 at 7.30pm, will feature additional material filmed in, and around Haworth village, and on the wild and windswept moors in sub-zero temperatures.

Withering Looks explores a day in the life of the Bronte sisters (well two of them, Anne’s just popped out for a cup of sugar) and in true Attenborough style there will be additional footage going behind the scenes of the making of the show.

PAC Director, Janet Farmer said: “I am absolutely delighted to have LipService returning to the venue’s live events programme, albeit this time virtually.

“PAC has a longstanding relationship with the company, with them selling out numerous performances in recent years.
