LipService, ‘Britain’s favourite literary lunatics’, present their multi-award winning cult show Withering Looks.
Withering Looks takes an ‘authentic’ look at the lives and words of the Bronte sisters – well, two of them actually, Anne’s just popped out for a cup of sugar.
Who is the Bronte’s mysterious neighbour, Mr Morrock of Ravaged Heath House, and what does the manical laughter coming from the attic mean? Do unfulfilled souls really wander the wild and heather clad moors? Who should Cathy marry, Heathcliff or David Niven?
Withering Looks has won a Manchester Evening News Theatre Award and the Critics Award for Comedy at the Edinburgh Festival. LipService have won the Stage Door Foundation Award for Excellence.
Maggie and Sue recently collaborated with the Bronte Parsonage on a film version of the show, shot inside the Bronte parsonage in January.
