Classic Second World War farce of mayhem set in a vicarage
The Reverend Lionel Toop’s wife, Penelope, is an ex-actress. While Lionel is away, Clive, an actor friend, now in the army, calls. He invites Penelope to dine in town, which is out of bounds to servicemen. He dresses in Lionel’s blacks. Miss Skillon, a parishioner, sees the couple repeating one of their old theatrical scenes and draws the wrong conclusion.
Matters become highly complicated when Lionel arrives, followed by the Bishop of Lax (Penelope’s uncle) and a German POW disguised as a vicar.
The performance will end at 10.05pm and will include a 20 minute interval
