FANCY a trip to Dibley - that most quintessentially English village with the truly eccentric, but very lovable inhabitants?

Tring Festival Company are bringing a stage version of the BBC’s hugely popular sitcom to Tring at the beginning of March, so you can reacquaint yourself with the babe with the bob-cut and the magnificent bosom and the rest of the gang.

TFC’s Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter are no strangers to adapting well known sitcoms for the stage. In 2002 Ian produced the first stage play of Dad’s Army, and between 2005 and 2007 he and Paul produced It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Porridge and most recently Hi-De-Hi!

Ian said: “The last few years have been really exciting for us at the Court as we have been at the forefront of the current vogue for producing stage versions of British situation comedies. Many of the writers and stars of the original television shows have been to the Court Theatre, Tring to see our work.”

The show features Ginny Faber as Geraldine Granger, Dave Barratt as David Horton and Andy Faber as his son Hugo. Maxine Reece is Alice Tinker with Lee Marsh, Dave Reece and Dennis Fugard as parish councillors Jim Trott, Frank Pickle and Owen Newitt plus Lindsay Smith as Letitia Cropley.

The Vicar of Dibley will be at the Court Theatre, Tring from Tuesday, March 8 to Saturday, March 12, 8pm with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
