WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
When their vicar passed away in the middle of a service, the inhabitants of the small Oxfordshire village of Dibley expected his replacement to be another old man with a beard, a Bible and bad breath. Instead, they got a babe with a bob-cut and a magnificent bosom. Geraldine Granger is a woman - yes, woman - who enjoys nothing more than a good laugh and a packet of chocolate hob nobs. The thoroughly modern, pop music loving vicar is far from the only eccentric character in the village, however. The locals include the very, very dim verger Alice Tinker, David Horton the pompous parish councillor, Hugo his indecisive son, the incomprehensible Jim Trott, Frank the boring parish clerk, straight-talking farmer Owen Newitt and terrible cook Laetitia Cropley. The play consists of three episodes from the popular television series: Songs of Praise, Celebrity Vicar and Love and Marriage.
