Report

Author: NOEL G. RIGG

Having seen many episodes on TV of The Vicar of Dibley I was most interested to see just how well Acorn Productions would cope with a play that was very stylised for the actors to perform. I was most gratified to find that they did all stick to the TV characterisations and very well too finding all the humour that made the series such a success. All the characters were very good but I felt Louise Watson as Alice Tinker was especially outstanding she was a joy to watch. The fine set and very good sound gave us all a most enjoyable evening.
