very funny - audiance loved it. by today's standards it's pretty clean as the driven snow. excellent characters, 1 set, no weird props/costumes other than lots and lots of mail. only negative is that the characters are supposed to sing a song -- you get lyrics from Sam French, but no music! We searched the internet, found an English group that done this play, contacted them and they graciously allowed us to use the melody that someone in their group had written. The play is typical Philip King -- if you liked See How They Run, you'll like this one too

This British farce was wonderfully entertaining! I’ll Get My Man is a story that takes place in a 1960′s English vicarage. In the vicarage lives the bumbling Reverend Humphrey, his overbearing sister and their maid. Everything gets crazy for them as unexpected guest begin to show up starting with their famous nephew, Peter.
The vicar and his naivety causes many of the show’s laughs while his sister is an uptight and obnoxious character who feels like she has to make up for his foolishness. Keeping the balance is a hilarious and snarky little house maid, Mrs. Carter.
Peter's character is irresistible and charming. The show also stars many other fabulously fun roles including a potty mouthed old bat named Winifred who gives Humphrey the idea to advertise for a wife, a hysterically insane female who answers the advertisement, and a grungy spoiled pop star named Pixie Potter from whom Peter is constantly on the run.
If I could say one thing about this show it would be that there was truly never a dull moment. Not once did I glance at my watch or let my mind wander in other directions. The entire show was very fast paced and entertaining. It made the time just fly by and demanded the attention of the audience. It is laugh out loud funny and a perfect choice for a small theater group.
