"See How They Run" is a classic British farce. Fast paced, extremely funny with a lot of physical comedy.
ABOUT THE PLAY: In a small English village, Penelope Toop, a former actress and now Vicar’s wife, receives a surprise visit from an old actor friend, Clive Winton. Clive finds himself the victim of multiple cases of mistaken identity when he innocently disguises himself as a vicar to avoid gossip. They valiantly try to evade a cockney maid, a neighboring busybody and assorted clergymen but things get hilariously complicated when the police show up looking for an escaped spy.
Rehearsals will begin in August 13th and continue on Mon.-Thur. evenings (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM) with some Saturday daytimes (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM) and Sundays only if needed, through to the September 27 opening. Not everyone will necessarily be needed for every rehearsal, except the full week leading up to final tech, dress and preview performances. Everyone should, however, be available for the entire rehearsal period, in case of changes and adjustments.
