See How They Run

May 2nd-10th


The play is set in the Vicarage of Merton-Cum-Middlewick, in a village in southern England during the closing years of the 1940's, a time when Britain was liberally populated by American military bases and the Iron Curtain had recently been dropped on eastern Europe, shrouding the expanded USSR and all communists with suspicion. The vicarage is occupied by the Rev. Lionel Toop and his relatively recent bride, Penelope. The couple had know each other as small children, but Penelope had moved to and grown up in the USA, where she had become an actress prior to re-meeting and marrying Lionel. Life can get complicated when the best laid social plans have to accommodate unexpected vistitors. How best to handle such situations?
