Award-winning theatre company, LipService, have been creating original comedies from a distinctly female perspective since 1985. Here, in a brand new work, they examine the world of communication from quill pen to SnapChat. With a comic look at Jane Austen’s letters, they consider the vagaries of the Georgian postal system and wonder what witty words Jane could have conjured up with a Twitter account. With extracts from Jane Austen’s novels, letters to family members and wickedly funny observations on her neighbours, they look at the vivid accounts she conjures of everyday life.
This event includes a post-performance question and answer session with the writers and actors.
