The Bishop of Lax – mid 50s or older. British. Imposing, dignified, accustomed to getting his own way. Must be somewhat agile, though not as much as the others. The Reverend Arthur Humphrey – mid 40s or older. British. A sweet man, he is slightly (and not so slightly) befuddled most of the time. Sergeant Towers – late 20s or older. A loud, blustery kind of man, he’s a take charge kinda guy. Must have a Cockney (or Yorkshire) type accent. SYNOPSIS: The play is set shortly after the end of World War II in the living room of the vicarage at the fictitious village of Merton-cum-Middlewick. The lead character is Penelope Toop, former actress and now wife of the local vicar, the Rev. Lionel Toop. The Toops employ Ida, a Cockney maid. Miss Skillon, a church-goer of the parish and a scold, arrives on bicycle to gossip with the vicar and to complain about the latest 'outrages' that Penelope has caused. The vicar then leaves for the night, and an old friend of Penelope's, Lance Corporal Clive Winton, stops by on a quick visit. In order to dodge army regulations, he changes from his uniform into Lionel's second-best suit, complete with a clerical 'dogcollar' in order to see a production of “Private Lives” in which they had appeared together in their acting days. He is pretending to be the visiting vicar Arthur Humphrey who is due to preach the Sunday sermon the next day. Just before they set out, Penelope and Clive re-enact a fight scene from "Private Lives" and accidentally knock Miss Skillon (who has come back unannounced) unconscious. Miss Skillon, wrongly thinking she has seen Lionel fighting with Penelope, gets drunk on a bottle of cooking sherry and Ida hides her in the broom cupboard. Then Lionel, arriving back, is knocked silly by a Russian spy on the run, who takes the vicar's clothes as a disguise. To add to the confusion, both Penelope's uncle, the Bishop of Lax, and the real Humphrey unexpectedly show up early. Chaos quickly ensues, culminating in a cycle of running figures and mistaken identities. In the end, a arrives in search of the spy to find four suspects, Lionel, Clive, Humphrey and the Russian, all dressed as clergy. No one can determine the identity of the spy (or anyone else for that matter) and the Russian is almost free when he is revealed and foiled by the quick work of Clive and Ida. The scene calms down as the sergeant leads the spy away and Humphrey leaves. Miss Skillon emerges from the closet, and she, the Bishop and Lionel demand an explanation. Penelope and Clive begin to explain in two-part harmony, getting up to the scene from "Private Lives," when Miss Skillon again manages to catch a blow in the face. She falls back into Ida's arms as the curtain falls. HART Theatre strives to produce high-quality entertainment in a community theatre environment. It is our mission to enhance, enrich and elevate the lives of our volunteers and patrons. The leadership at HART is comprised of seasoned theatre veterans who share a passion for, and dedication to theatre and community, and we are serious about our commitment to both of those ideals.
