Play Synopsis

Set in 1993, the first year that women priests were ordained. The vicarage is empty whilst waiting for a new vicar to take up residence so the Churchwarden, George, takes the opportunity to make some money by renting it out for a murder mystery weekend. However, Bishop Herbert, determined to have the first parish with a female vicar, has appointed Caroline Timberlake. Fortunately, Caroline decides to attend a college reunion so George’s plans can go ahead. But events take a turn for the worse when Bishop Herbert decides to visit his new vicar. Actors, guests and church dignitaries create total confusion as George tries to salvage the weekend – and get paid!
