For a textbook English farce, begin with a cast of characters that includes a parish vicar, a ditsy maid, a nosy spinster, a former actress, a cheeky soldier, a visiting bishop, a short-tempered sergeant, a German prisoner of war on the run and a sedate parson aghast at all the goings-on.
Add in some very unlikely situations, misunderstandings, mistaken identities, a bottle of sherry and some witty dialogue — and you have the no-holds-barred hilarity of the comedy play “See How They Run.” It’s a play guaranteed to laugh away the Winter (and Spring!) blues!

The play “See How They Run” is set in 1943 in the very proper living room of the vicarage at the fictitious English village of Merton-cum-Middlewick.
What begins as a normal afternoon in the home of the Rev. Lionel Toop erupts into chaos as all hell breaks loose.
If you’re in the mood for a fast-paced, door-slamming, face-slapping, vicars-in-their-knickers good time, then this is the comedy show for you!
