Mr Darcy Loses the Plot

Suitable for ages 12+

Jane Austen's quill scurries across the vellum. She is dreaming up Darcy- a proud, handsome creation in very tight pants. Then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator stitches her quilt. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a different tune. 

Award-winning comedy duo LipService explore the world of women writers, scribbling in secret or under pseudonyms, writing amongst the hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz or the odd attack of the vapours.
