    LipService go off the rails as they return to the Corn Exchange with this comedy thriller.

    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, LipService give you a whistle-stop tour that will leave you breathless and racing for the refreshment coach.
