Season 2019: The Vicar of Dibley

Playgoers, Shows
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
This hilarious play (adapted from the popular 1990s TV comedy) is set in the sleepy village of Dibley, where the elderly local vicar has just died and the parish council members, led by their pompous, opinionated chairman David Horton, are waiting to greet his replacement. They are definitely not expecting anyone like Geraldine Granger – ‘a babe with a bob cut and a magnificent bosom’! Nevertheless, kind-hearted, fun-loving Geraldine (aided by pea-brained verger Alice Tinker) sets out to win over the oddball inhabitants of Dibley while staying true to herself.

Although female vicars are no longer considered particularly unusual, the play’s humour has remained fresh, partly thanks to the wonderfully eccentric characters who make up Geraldine’s congregation. 

Don’t miss this show, which will definitely put you in a festive mood in the run-up to Christmas!
