THE PLAY: This lively farce takes place in the vicarage of a small British town during the 40s. Four men end up in clerical collars, which creates mistaken identity, mild innuendo and broad comedy.

 

THE PRODUCTION: A show like this revolves around the direction and Tom Width has chocked this production full of clever comic bits (and an attractive set). Even though the cast ably handles the split-second demands of the physical gags, the performances are uneven. Some have timing that mines every moment (especially Jacqueline Jones & Steve King), while others are simply competent. The audience roared with approval at Act Two’s mayhem. I found it enjoyable, but lacking the pizzazz that would have put it over the top.

 

THE POINT: This lively farce is mostly enjoyable, but not exceptional.
