Welcome to the home of LipService Theatre Company.  We are very proud to announce that we have won the Stage Door Award for Excellence at the Manchester Theatre Awards. This is a new award that recognises excellent work and sustainability and we were very delighted to receive it. We are currently performing The Picture of Doreen Gray, a co-production with Oldham Coliseum. The show is touring throughout Britain and tickets are now on sale! Join us in January at Sale Waterside Arts to celebrate 30 years of LipService with a revival of our cult show Withering Looks.

"Britain’s favourite literary lunatics"

-The Independent

Doreen Grey

"Laughter is a life-affirming experience, it is a signal of acceptance and positive interaction. It is our primary aim to provide a positive night out at the theatre, which is cathartic and exhilarating."

-Maggie Fox & Sue Ryding Artistic Directors

"What Lip Service do well is blurring those lines between the professionals and the audience. ‘Come with us’, they seem to say, ‘because we’re not sure what we’re doing but we’re all friends here, right?’ I think they like it here, with their friends, rather than on a pedestal. And for an audience member, it’s pretty joyous being considered one of their friends". Northern Soul

"The theatre goers embraced the performers with something that can only be described as affection"

-The Independent
