Preston Drama Club’s latest production at Preston Playhouse Theatre is the classic English farce, ‘See How They Run’ by Philip King, written and set in rural England in World War 2.

Vicar’s wife and ex-actress, Penelope Toop, is already disapproved of by village matriarch, Miss Skillon. Things get worse when she is visited by Clive, an old theatre friend, now in the army, who borrows her husband’s spare vicar’s outfit.

When an escaped German POW steals the real vicar’s clothes, and another vicar and a bishop come to visit, the scene is set for a fast-paced farce of jealousy and mistaken identity, with a drunk and love-starved Miss Skillon adding to the confusion

The play is on Wednesday November 6 to Saturday November 9 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 and £7 including programme. Call 01772 744771/252288
