The Vicar Of Dibley (theatre)

The Polegate Community Association Drama Group are following their May production of Stepping Out with the comedy, The Vicar Of Dibley. The play is based on the brilliant television series that starred Dawn French as a vicar. The Polegate production is directed by Muriel Willis and will be performed during the Autumn half term holiday week so older children could probably be allowed to stay up a bit later to watch it? I am told that there is some mild swearing in the script, presumably around the same level as was on the BBC.

The stage version has been written by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter and begins with the unexpected arrival of Geraldine Granger into the quiet village of Dibley. Dibley's residents aren't yet ready for Geraldine's particularly irreverent approach to religion or even, in some cases, for her being a woman. We will again meet the pompous David and his son Hugo, the dippy verger Alice Tinker, Owen and Frank, inspired cook Letitia, and "no no no no yes", Jim.

Polegate Community Centre, Wed 31st Oct to Sat 3rd Nov, 19:45.
Sat matinee, 14:45.
Tickets £8, children & students £6. Tickets available online, by calling 01323 483348 or in person from Archer & Partners in the High Street.
