Thrills & Quills – Jane Austen’s life in letters by LipService
***** both performances have now sold out **********
Celebrate Christmas with Jane Austen & Mrs Gaskell in Thrills & Quills
LipService theatre make a seasonal return to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House to 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.
With extracts from Jane Austen’s novels, letters to family members and wickedly funny observations on her neighbours.
Brace yourself for a surprise appearance by Mrs Gaskell herself, who would clearly not be left out of any party!
