The Vicar of Dibley

By Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter

Comedy gold comes to the Playhouse!

This hilarious play (adapted from the popular 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! It will put you in a festive mood in the run up to Christmas.

“You were expecting a bloke - beard, bible, bad breath. And instead, you got a babe with a bob cut and a magnificent bosom.”
