XACT_See How They Run logoSEE HOW THEY RUN
Xenia Area Community Theatre
April 17-18
Sorg Theater [Middletown]

Directed by Richard Lee Waldeck
Produced by Mike Taint

Cast: Rachel Terrell as Ida, Sandy Coleman as Miss Skillon, Brian Laughlin as The Reverend Lionel Toop, Abby Kinnebrew Smith as Penelope Toop, Michael Schumacher as Corporal Clive Winton, Abigail Krakora as The Intruder, Dean Shipley as The Bishop of Lax, Michael Kilbourne as Sergeant Towers & Chris Nelson as The Reverend Arthur Humphrey

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 vicar’s wife’s past comes to visit. The bishop (the wife’s uncle) shows up early, and an escaped Russian convict hides in the house. Throw in another vicar and a witty maid, who is a little off, and you have a hilarious comedy.
