Event description

Description

In a show entitled Thrills and Quills, professional theatre company LipService, once called “Britain's favourite literary lunatics” by The Guardian, will take a comic look at Jane Austen's letters, examine the vagaries of the Georgian postal system and wonder what witty words Jane could have conjured up with a Twitter account. They will examine the world of communication from quill pen to SnapChat. With extracts from Jane Austen's novels, letters to family members and wickedly funny observations on her neighbours, the show will look at the vivid account Jane conjures of everyday life.
