SEE HOW THEY RUN
Troy Civic Theatre
Sept. 30-Oct. 9
Directed by Michael Schumacher
Cast: Tina Green as Ida, Janet Wasson as Ms Skillon, Carlos Baez Jr as Rev. Lionel Toop, Abby Kinnebrew Smith as Penelope Toop, Doug Gibbons as Corp. Clive Winton, Derek Dunavent as The Intruder, Brian Laughlin as The Bishop of Lax, John Lawson as Rev. Arthur Humphrey, Sam Jacobi as Sergeant Towers & Macy O’Brien as Choir Boy
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.
