Performed at CTA June 19-22, 2014

Galloping in and out of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress, 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 (one of whom is an escaped prisoner in disguise), and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on. Prepare to laugh very hard indeed.
