Bedford Corn Exchange Wednesday 8th
LipService, Britain’s favourite literary lunatics, are 25 this
season! As part of their celebrations, Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding
reprise their cult Bronte spoof Withering Looks.
They could hardly turn down this opportunity to dust off their
crinolines, wear flattering bonnets and sit at rain-lashed windows
in a pale and decorative manner.
Withering Looks takes an “authentic” look at the lives and works
of the Bronte sisters – well, two of them actually, Anne’s just
popped out for a cup of sugar.
Peopled with many of the characters we know and love, Maggie and
Sue move effortlessly from frock to frock coat.
