I’ll Get My Man
A comedy by Philip King
The Little Theatre, Old Royal Marines Camp, Butts Close, Faringdon
Peter Graham, T.V. series hero, seeks refuge at the country rectory with his mild clerical Uncle Humphrey from all the females who continually chase after him, and in particular from Pixie Potter. Humphrey, horrified by the threatened loss of his housekeeper who has been dismissed by his formidable sister, advertises for a wife but absent-mindedly omits the important word “marriage.” These two occurrences resoundingly shatter the peace of the village. Answers to the ad pour in. The arrival of the dignified Bishop of Lax adds to the confusion. Peter finds the vicarage no refuge from Pixie Potter and even more hectic than the outside world.
Writer, broadcaster, entertainer and irreverent poet Pam Ayres was once a member of the Society and took part in this production. She continued to be a patron of the Society for many years and her photograph was hung in the foyer of the theatre.
