The Vicar of Dibley

March 4, 2015

The Vicar of Dibley
A comedy by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter

Directed by Loretta Bishop

Season 1 2015: 
4 March to 22 March

Adapted from the original TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer. 

By special arrangement with Tiger Aspect Productions (subject to granting of rights).

Life in the sleepy Oxfordshire village of Dibley is turned upside-down when the ancient former reverend dies and the diocese sends a new female vicar as his replacement. Her arrival is met with a mixture of wonder and horror from the assorted collection of rural yokels who call Dibley home. This play is a laugh from start to finish. Relive the arrival of the new Vicar, be part of the congregation for Alice's hilarious wedding, and meet again the many insane inhabitants of the quiet village of Dibley - pompous David Horton, his son Hugo, dippy verger Alice, crude farmer Owen, Leticia, Frank and dithering "no, no, no, no, yes," Jim Trott.
