Devonshire Park Theatre
Thursday 18 August - Saturday 3 September 2011 (No performances Sunday & Monday)
A very British farce. Hilarity guaranteed.
“I assure you I am in complete possession of all my faculties – and – forgive my saying so – I am beginning to think I am the only person in the house who is ...”
Starring Lucy Speed and Arthur Bostrom
Philip King's 1945 farcical gem sees a sequence of dog-collared strangers turn a homely wartime vicarage in peaceful Merton-cum-Middlewick completely upside down as a maverick soldier, an escaped POW, a Bishop and a few vicars get tangled up in a case of mistaken identity.
"The Original Theatre Company’s production of “See How They Run” is superb"
"Wonderful performances by the company"
At its heart is the refreshingly modern Penelope, who finds out more about herself, her husband and her uncle the Bishop, than she ever imagined as she tries to keep a semblance of order as a harmless joke throws the village into mortal peril.
The Original Theatre Company return to the Devonshire Park Theatre following their wonderful received productions of The Madness of George III, Vincent In Brixton, Journey’s End and most recently Dancing At Lughnasa.
"Rachel Donovan’s Ida has to be seen to be believed and is worth going for alone."
Chaotic, uproarious and daring, See How They Run is one of the finest farces ever written produced by the award winning Original Theatre Company. A wonderful summer treat.
“A frightfully English, seriously funny farce” Lynne Walker, The Independent
“It is fantastic knockabout stuff that keeps the audience laughing, gasping, groaning and cheering ... I would advise anyone to give this a try.” What’s On Stage
“I couldn't love anyone who didn't relish See How They Run.” Michael Billington, The Guardian
“The actress, the bishop and an evening of blissful hilarity Philip King's wartime comedy seems as fresh, ingenious and delightful as ever...” Benedict Nightingale, The Times
