Voted Britain’s 3rd most popular TV sitcom, BBC’s The Vicar of Dibley was created by Richard Curtis and written for its lead actress, Dawn French.
Hard to believe but it was almost 20 years ago that the first episode, featuring Geraldine’s shock arrival at David Horton’s manor house, appeared on our screens. The series ran until 2007.
The Vicar Of Dibley was set in a fictional small Oxfordshire village called Dibley, which is assigned a female vicar following the 1992 changes in the Church of England that permitted the ordination of women.
A specially-crafted script, based on several of the most popular episodes, has been skilfully adapted for amateur theatre companies to perform by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter. All proceeds will be going to Comic Relief.
Courtesy of Tiger Aspect Productions, The Chameleons of Chandler’s Ford are excited to be bringing these popular characters back to life on stage in The Ritchie Hall from 24th to 26th of July 2014.
