ANTIOCH – “See How They Run” by Philip King opens Jan. 26 and will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for three weekends at the PM&L Theatre, 877 Main St.
“See How They Run” is a four-door, galloping, highly physical English farce that will leave its audiences breathless with laughter, a news release stated. The play takes place in a vicarage during World War II where everyone ends up dressed like a vicar except the vicar.
Penelope Toop (Tara Petrozelli of Burlington, Wis.), a former American actress, is married to the stuffy local vicar (Matthew Leptich of Antioch). She innocently meets up with an old friend (Justin Fiorelli of Waukegan), who is in town on military leave. A busybody parishioner, Miss Skillon (Chris Jones of Lindenhurst), catches Penelope performing a scene from Noel Coward’s “Private Lives,” and that’s all the confirmed suspicion she needs to stop Penelope from cheating on her husband, and starts the play on its way to being a ridiculously raucous farce.
The show is directed by Jim Behr, whose previous PM&L directing credits include “Kill Me, Deadly” and “No Sex, Please, We’re British.”
“See How They Run” will run at 8 p.m. Jan. 26 and 27 and Feb. 2, 3, 9 and 10; and at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and 11.
