Award-winning comedy duo LipService, makers of Withering Looks and Inspector Norse celebrate Jane Austen’s life 200 years on.

Jane Austen sits writing, her quill scurrying across the vellum. She is dreaming up Darcy – a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane must abandon her work. Now left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator stitches her quilt. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a very different tune.

LipService explore the world of women writers, squeezing in their writing amongst the domestic hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz and the odd attack of the vapours…
