MAY 2017 SEE HOW THEY RUN by Philip King So swift is the action, so involved the  situations, so rib tickling the plot in this  London hit that at its finish audiences  are left as exhausted from laughter as  though they had run a foot race.   See How They Run is set in the idyllic  village of Merton-cum-Middlewick,  England during the 1940s. It's World  War II, and the village inhabitants are  preparing themselves for the imminent  threat of Nazi invasion.   Meanwhile, resident spinster, Miss  Skillon, becomes convinced that her  beloved vicar's actress wife is having an  affair and attempts to expose her. Add  an escaped German prisoner of war, a  handsome actor, the visiting Bishop of  Lax, a rotund locum priest and some  meddling neighbours and hilarious  confusion and mayhem result.  Galloping in and out of the four doors of  an English vicarage are an American  actor and actress (he is now stationed   in England), a cockney maid who has  seen too many American movies, an old  maid who "touches alcohol for the first  time in her life," four men in clergyman  suits presenting the problem of which is  which, for disguised as one is an  escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop  aghast at all these goings on and the  trumped up stories they tell him. Barbara Miller will direct the play. Tickets on sale NOW!!! Tickets available from: Monday Players Members 01904 728303 tickets@mondayplayers.com
