The Vicar of Dibley

Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, adapted by Andrew Pippen and Jonathan Willis

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Join us for a timeless favourite, The Vicar of Dibley, presented by Hilarity Theatre Group in aid of Comic Relief. This extraordinary and side-splitting production is sure to keep you laughing heartily. Brilliantly crafted episodes are woven together to create a show brimming with merriment.

The hilariously memorable Parish Council characters, along with our very own Geraldine, promise to send you into peals of laughter. Anticipate a delightful array of entertainment they have planned for you.

Geraldine is presented with not just the chance to host a radio show for the Parish Council but also to organise a Gala evening and a Christmas play. But what can go right? Surely Jim will be on his best behaviour, right? And David, who might have embarrassed himself on live radio, thankfully has his moment of redemption.

Owen as a sound man? Now that's intriguing. Fear not, Mrs. Cropley will be there to ensure everyone is well catered for with her unique cakes.

Rest assured, there are no dull moments in this play. We invite you to this joy-filled show.

This amateur production has been adapted from the TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer by kind permission of United Agents. 'The Vicar of Dibley' was originally produced by Tiger Aspect Productions.

This production is suitable for ages 12 and over.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
