Synopsis

Comedy Play Script: 'Oh Comrade, What A Lovely Pair' by Mike SoleThey’re back! The dysfunctional Woods family from 'Oh Vicar, What A Lovely Pair!” return to the stage in this new comedy. The action takes place six months after we were first introduced to the family. Roxanne is marrying Charles in a week’s time and the last-minute preparations are taking place. Bob has even taken a small job to make ends meet and Kevin has a job interview too. Everything is going fine until Bob has an unusual encounter with a smuggler from the Russian Mafia.

At a chance meeting in the local park Rasputina accidentally swaps a briefcase containing two very expensive bottles of vintage fine wine, with Bob Woods case of household cleaning products, and she and her boss must find a way of getting it back.

With Bob’s family busy preparing for his daughter Roxanne’s wedding there are plenty of people coming and going to the house, even a gorilla, photographer, bridesmaids, the in-laws and who is that in the Spiderman costume? 

With plenty of opportunities for mistaken identities this play is a riot of laughter from beginning to end. Fans of TV sitcoms such as 'Only Fools & Horses' and 'The Royle Family' will enjoy the real life humour of this play.

This is the sequel to ‘Oh Vicar, What A Lovely Pair!’, but can be performed without any knowledge of the previous play.
