This English farce is set shortly after the end of World War II in the living room of the vicarage belonging to Penelope Topp, in the fictitious village Merton-cum-Middlewick. Penelope is an American former actress and now wife of the local vicar, the Rev. Lionel Toop. When the vicar leaves for the night, an old friend of Penelope’s, Lance-Corporal Clive Winton, stops by on a quick visit. To dodge army regulations while out on the town, he changes from his uniform into Lionel’s second-best suit, complete with a clerical dog-collar. Then Lionel, arriving back, is knocked silly by a Russian escaped from the local Army base, who takes the vicar’s clothes as a disguise. Add to the confusion a feisty cockney maid, the local busybody getting drunk for the first time, and both Penelope’s uncle, the Bishop of Lax, and Aurther Humphrey, a visiting vicar, unexpectedly showing up early. Chaos quickly ensues, culminating in a cycle of running figures and mistaken identities.
