The Vicar of Dibley

The Vicar of Dibley

by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter, adapted from the original TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer.

With kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions.

Drawing on episodes from the first two series, the story begins with Rev Geraldine Grainger’s arrival in Dibley village, to the surprise and consternation of the villagers, and traces her attempts to gain their acceptance while supporting the budding romance of squire’s son Hugo and her verger, Alice. We’ll be bringing to life, in our own way, the various beloved characters who make up the parish council, with all their eccentricities.

Performances are at our Studio from November 14th to 17th 2018 at 7:30pm.
Tickets are £8.00 per head. (The increase is because the fees we have to pay for this show are much higher than usual. On the plus side, a chunk of the fees does go towards Comic Relief, so it’s all in a good cause.)

Please reserve your tickets by contacting Margaret on 07421 056814. Note: reservations are not confirmed as bookings until they are paid for. Payments can be made by cash, cheque (made out to 'Dovercourt Theatre Group') or card at Cutaway, 10 West Street (roughly opposite Pieseas chippy), any day except Sunday or Thursday.

Please let us know if you require disabled access. As always, we ask patrons coming by car to park with consideration for local residents.
