Event Details

This wonderfully funny farce is set in the vicarage of the small village of Merton-cum-Middlewick. The vicar’s wife Penelope Toop, has been enticed by Ida, the maid and her doltish boyfriend Willie Briggs into a flutter on the football pools, which seem to have come up trumps. The win however is not a certainty. It must be checked and this is where the fun begins. In true farce tradition it has its protagonists, the Rev Lionel Toop and the sexually frustrated spinster Miss Skillon, who are both dead set against gambling. Throw in a clutch of clergymen and another pools coupon and you have a household in a high state of confusion as coupons are switched and switched again, trousers are lost and the inevitable breathless pursuits in and out of cupboards occur that are so familiar to lovers of vicarage farces. This sparkling comedy has every ingredient to send the audience home with their sides aching with laughter.
