Withering Looks by LipService Theatre – Thursday 22 April, 7.30pm. Tickets £15.00.

Commissioned by the Bronte Parsonage Museum, LipService Theatre perform scenes from their award-winning comedy Withering Looks filmed in the ACTUAL parsonage where the Bronte sisters wrote their ACTUAL books ACTUALLY! With additional material filmed in and around Haworth village and on the wild and windswept moors in sub-zero temperatures! The film explores a day in the life of the Bronte sisters (well two of them, Anne’s just popped out for a cup of sugar). And in true Attenborough style there is additional footage of the making of the film. LipService Theatre will introduce the film live on Zoom and a live Q&A will follow the screening.
