“See How They Run” is a fast paced comedy/farce about a young vicar’s wife who is trying to fit into a small tightly knit town. Set in the background of World War II, things go awry when a pompous church matron comes calling unannounced and a male friend from the young vicar’s wife’s past comes to visit (while the good vicar is away), The bishop (the wife’s uncle) shows up two days early and an escaped Russian convict hides in the house. The story moves into light but misinterpreted scandal, mistaken identities, the mugging of the good vicar, and the church matron’s introduction to heavy drinking (which she has never done before). Throw in another vicar and a witty maid, who is a little off and you have a comedy that will make even the grumpiest smile!
