See How They Run

By Philip King

By kind permission of Samuel French Ltd.

In the English country village of Merton cum Middlewick, as World War Two rages on, Rev Lionel Toop has battles of his own. Village busybody Miss Skillon already has it in for his wife, former actress Penelope, and the situation is made worse when she falsely believes she has witnessed a fight between the couple. Penelope's uncle, who happens to be a bishop, is visiting, and so, unexpectedly, is Clive, an actor friend currently in the forces. Adding to the inconvenience is a German P.O.W. from the nearby internment camp who has escaped and decided to take refuge in the vicarage. To say that chaos ensues is an understatement!

A frantic, hilarious farce with too many clergy and not enough trousers.
