The LipService Theatre comedy duo, creator of the unforgettable Withering Looks, are now touring the UK with a new show, The Hysterical History Show, that also contains Brontë references:
Cult theatre company and comedy duo LipService return to their stand up roots in the Hysterical Historical Show – a whacky whirlwind tour of Britain’s female national treasures.
Meet notorious gossip Mrs Gaskell and her timid friend Charlotte Brontë, learn about Marie Stopes and her little known friendship with Scott of the Antarctic, stage a protest with the ever radical Pankhursts, meet Georgian housekeeper and inventor of cuppa soup Elizabeth Raffald, Annie Horniman, creator of the modern repertory theatre and many more. Nothing is sacred. But we hope you have been paying attention because there will be a quiz, not a very serious one, with points and points mean prizes.
Part sketch show, part pub quiz this show has all the ingredients of a fun night out
