Spring Productions 2015 - "Entertaining Angels" by Richard Everett





A play about four women and a ghost, Entertaining Angels is filled with sharp-edged comedy, healthy irreverence, probing wit and tremendous emotion. Bardy – the recently deceased Vicar whose dilemmas and beliefs live on after him. Grace - his widow, who battles to come to terms with life, love, death and betrayal. Ruth - her missionary sister who has held on to a guilty secret for 30 years. Jo - Grace’s psychotherapist daughter who despite her failed marriage becomes a calming intermediary between her mother and aunt. Sarah - the new Vicar who discloses her own past and uncertainty. Set in the deceptive quiet of a quintessential English garden, this play is not just about love, grief, denial, acceptance, forgiveness and moving on. It also involves a hamster, a lawn mower, a French polisher and other witty diversions!
