ABOUT THE SHOW: Galloping in and out of doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed in the Air Force in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who "touches alcohol for the first time in her life," four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell.

  • PENELOPE TOOP – Reverend Toop's wife.
  • CORPORAL CLIVE WINTON – 20’s, former actress, playful, quick-witted, and level headed, she is the wife of Lionel.
  • THE INTRUDER – 20’s to 30’s, a desperate escaped Russian spy.
  • THE BISHOP – 50’s, Penelope’s uncle, proper British in the stodgy sense.

  • SERGEANT TOWERS – 30’s, a British bulldog of a sergeant.
