The Hawarden Players are thrilled to announce our play talking place in July 2018 will be…
‘Don’t Get Your Vicars in a Twist’ is set in 1993, the year the first female vicar was ordained in the UK, and is a fast-moving farce full of fun, frolics, near misses and doors opening and closing!
Desperate to find the funds to pay for his daughter’s wedding, Church Warden, George Williams, seizes the opportunity to rent out the vicarage while waiting for a new vicar to be appointed. The booking is to a touring Theatre Company, who are to stage a Murder Mystery weekend in which a female Vicar and a Bishop are among the cast.
Unfortunately for George, a new female Vicar is appointed to the vicarage just before the Murder Mystery weekend can take place. George thinks he is still in luck when the new Vicar, Caroline Timberlake announces that she is to visit friends at a college reunion over the weekend. However, events take a turn for the worse when Bishop Herbert rings the vicarage to announce that he is to visit to meet his new vicar.
Chaos ensues as the actor playing the Bishop in the Murder Mystery weekend is mistaken by George and fellow Churchwarden Alan, for the real Bishop Herbert and the Bishop himself mistakes the actor playing the Vicar for Caroline.
Matters get worse as half of the Theatre Company fails to make an appearance and the remainder spend most of their time either fighting with each other or getting drunk, or both. This is even before we meet the guests!
Performances will take place on the 26th, 27th and 28th July 2018, 7.30pm at the Hawarden Institute, with tickets on sale now from our Purchase Page.
