Mr Darcy Loses the Plot
Returning to Ledbury, award-winning comedy duo LipService, makers of Withering Looks and Inspector Norse, celebrate Jane Austen’s life 200 years on.
Jane Austen is dreaming up Darcy, a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her writing. Mr Darcy is left dangling. Left to his own devices, he embroiders his own storyline while his creator stitches her quilt. When Jane returns she finds Darcy is diving into a lake in a clinging white shirt, dancing the Berserka (a more extreme sports version of the Mazurka) and wrestling carp.
