Based on the hit BBC comedy about the residents of the quaint village of Dibley and their new vicar, this latest production is being presented by the Seagull Rep, the professional repertory company of Lowestoft theatre the Seagull. The show, which follows on from the success of the Seagull Rep's production of Fawlty Towers, is being performed at Norwich Playhouse tomorrow and Saturday as part of a wider tour.

Agnes Lillis, who played Sybil in the Seagull Rep's Fawlty Towers, stars in the Dawn French role of Geraldine.

John Hales, director and manager of the Seagull, said: 'Agnes and the whole cast are just brilliant.

'For anyone who liked the series, you are in for a real family friendly treat.'

It has already been performed at the Seagull theatre, in Lowestoft, and also in Freckenham, Fakenham, Diss, Great Yarmouth and Thetford. Following on from the show's two dates in Norwich, it will return to the Seagull on Sunday. Next week it will be performed at Beccles Public Hall on Wednesday and Thursday, and The Atrium in North Walsham on Friday.
