Message from Anne Marie Cairns – Director
Our next performance is ENTERTAINING ANGELS By Richard Everett
‘ I’ve made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of light crust pastry. And for what?’
As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying the new found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases. Wanting her own space she does not hold back at telling her daughter to stop fussing and stop being over protective. She is not happy that she will soon have to move out of her home that she shared with her beloved husband as the new vicar arrives to take over. The return of her eccentric missionary sister Ruth, adds more fuel to the fire with some disturbing revelations forcing Grace to confront the truth of her marriage.
Grace’s daughter Jo, battling to support her mother whilst coping with her own grief, befriends the new vicar who worries that something in her past maybe renders her unsuitable for the position of Vicar
With a mixture of sharp-edged comedy and probing wit, this play asks whether God can be trusted to do anything right at all. ‘Or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?’
