A VICAR OF DIBLEY CHRISTMAS
A stage play by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter adapted from the original TV series by Richard Curtius and Paul Mayhew-Archer.
With kind permission of Tiger Aspects Productions.
This the sequel to the first adaptation of the Vicar of Dibley references some later episodes of the show where relationships between the villagers have moved on. The language is different and often appears terse and to the point, and in some cases, quite cruel. This is the development of a sit com over a number of years as the writers and cast slip into their roles and the whole process becomes more natural and fluid.
Hugo and Alice have returned from their honeymoon slightly late, after an unfortunate drug smuggling incident - and more than slightly pregnant. Meanwhile, with the Millennium fast approaching, Dibley's in trouble with no celebrations planned. Then, unbelievably, Alice has her first ever good idea. This leads to a classic Christmas episode featuring the great Dibley Farmyard nativity, where the audience get a far more realistic birth than they bargained for.
The play will be performed on 21,22,23 and 24 November 2018 at 7.30pm in Veryan Parish Hall.
