What's On Guide

Mr Darcy Loses the Plot
Wed 6 – Sat 9 September

35668074472_8e2ef868fa_z.jpgThe Jane Austen inspired comedy stars award-winning local performers Sue Ryding (Chorlton) alongside Maggie Fox (Whalley Range).
In Mr Darcy loses the Plot, multi-award winning actors Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding play an array of characters, moving effortlessly – well, almost – from frock to frock coat in their inimitable style on an entirely quilted set. 
Sue Ryding plays Jane Austen, sitting at her tiny writing desk, dreaming up Mr Darcy. But when a neighbour visits, Jane has to hide her work and take tea, leaving poor old Mr Darcy dangling in the ether.

Darcy, played by Maggie Fox, gets bored with his storyline, (endless balls and country houses) and decides to make his plot line more exciting, diving into lakes, wrestling carp and dancing the Berserka (a more extreme sports version of the Mazurka)
LipService explore the world of women writers, scribbling in secret or under pseudonyms, squeezing in their writing amongst the hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz and having the vapours.
