Soap stars take to the stage at the Lichfield Garrick

An all-star cast of familiar faces is coming to Lichfield for a revival of the smash-hit comedy the Tart and the Vicar’s Wife.

The Lichfield Garrick show features Linda Armstrong (The Royal), Matt Healy (the bad boy of Emmerdale), Marcus Hutton (Brookside) and Sarah Jane Buckley (HollyOaks).

The productions sees Glenda and her husband Robert Parry as the archetypal successful couple – him an affluent businessman, her the glam ‘exec’ wife with all the trappings of wealth. That is until Robert decides to devote his life to God and become a vicar after being delivered unscathed from a horrendous car crash. Glenda consequently finds herself thrust into a complete transformation, struggling to make ends meet and dealing with her new identity crisis.
 
When Robert leaves for a four-week seminar, Glenda turns to her friends for support, all of whom are in similar financial distress. While Robert is away the action is constantly interrupted by the appearance of the vicar’s curate, Henry, to great comic effect.

When a millionaire lottery winner turns up to seek the reverend’s help in exorcising his haunted manor house, he meets Glenda and her friends who end up baring their souls to him and discovering just how far they will go for money!

The show is at the Garrick from October 6-10. Tickets are available by calling the box office on 01543 412121 or visiting the theatre’s website.
