LipService, who have been creating original comedies from a distinctly female perspective since 1985, go off the rails in Strangers on a Train Set at The Haymarket on Wednesday 27 February at 7.30pm.
Challenging a youth to turn down his music, Irene Sparrow, inventor of the left-handed crochet hook (patent pending, as seen on Dragon’s Den), finds herself under suspicion of murder after the train emerges from a tunnel with the young man dead.
But this is no ordinary train. Each passenger is reading a book, each book is a portal into a parallel universe of train-related crime fiction.
With clever use of projection and multiple train sets, Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding, aka LipService, give you a whistle-stop tour that will leave you breathless and racing for the refreshment coach.
Tickets for Strangers on a Train Set are priced £17.50 (includes £3 booking fee). Suitable for ages 8 and over. For more information or for tickets, call the Anvil Arts box office on 01256 844244, or visit the website anvilarts.org.uk.
