Of vital importance to the development of English drama was the entrance of the first actresses upon the stage. April De Angelis has taken five of these women – Nell Gwyn, Elizabeth Farley, Rebecca Marshall, Doll Common and Mary Betterton – and given us a fascinating look at their precarious lives in the Restoration period. A moving and often comic account of a true story based around 1669.

This stage adaptation of the popular BBC comedy takes its source primarily from the first two series of the show. It follows the bubbly and bouncy Vicar Geraldine Grainger, who is assigned to a small farming village called Dibley. At first the local community are horrified at the thought of a female Vicar, but eventually they learn to accept her. She too learns – and challenges – the steadfast ways of the village, and manoeuvres her way into the hearts of the parishioners and their community.
