See How They Run is set in the idyllic village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, England during the 1940s. As World War II rages on, the village inhabitants are preparing themselves for the imminent threat of Nazi invasion.

Meanwhile, resident spinster, Miss Skillon, becomes convinced that her beloved vicar's actress wife is having an affair and attempts to expose her.

Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress—he is now stationed with 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—one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories they tell him. 

All of which adds up to what Variety calls “A breathless show, with a fast tempo, and plenty of laughs."

The cast of See How They Run includes Stacey Petricha, Paula Ehrenberg, Susan Holtz, Duane Noch, Tyler Barnick, Bob Dumpert, Glenn Jussen, Lewis Decker, and Rey Perez.
