SEE HOW THEY RUN

See How They Run, the wonderfully funny and much loved farce is brought to life on stage once again but this time with a difference - all of the actors are under four feet tall!

See How They Run is nowadays widely regarded as one of the best farces written by Philip King. Set in 1944 in a vicarage in the village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, it is a quintessentially British, extremely well written play featuring timelessly funny characters – a maid, a spinster, a German soldier, retired actors, a bishop and a handful of vicars. A plot of mishaps and mistaken identity causes the action to spiral out of control, culminating in a houseful of bishops, deacons and other assorted clergymen.

An already hilarious play will be enhanced by the fact that it is to be performed by talented short actors. The show is suitable for the whole family so for an evening of theatre that won’t be ‘short’ of laughs, book your tickets now!

Read about the opening night at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley.
