Pools Paradise

By Philip King
Directed by Paul A. Orsett

Zany, madcap events transpire at the Reverend Lionel Toop’s vicarage in Merton cum Middlewick. The plot revolves around Lionel’s wife, Penelope, who dabbles in a football pool with the help of their maid, Ida, and Ida’s suitor, the droll Willie Briggs. The most fantastic complications ensue when the triumvirate wins, or when they think they have won more than 20,000 pounds. Lending richly comic hands are the old maid parishioner, Miss Skillon, and Penelope’s out of this world uncle, The Bishop of Lax. What happens when these assorted characters all get together on one stage has to be seen to be believed.
