Entertaining Angels

Our summer production is ‘Entertaining Angels’ by Richard Everett and directed by Jeff Hutchinson.

Clergy wife Grace (award winning Tish Wells) has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now following the death of her husband Bardolph (David Clarke), she is enjoying the new-found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases. When her missionary sister Ruth (Sue Whitell) comes home to lend support, their old sisterly dynamics and rivalries soon come to the fore.

The dazzling cast: Tish, Sue, and Steph Letten (who worked together on ‘The Ladybirds’) are joined by veteran David Clarke and Debbie Trott, who is making a welcome return to the boards in Colyton.

‘Entertaining Angels’ deals with family secrets and lies and provides a comic mask for the serious issues of relationships, communication and compromise with astute, dry delivery.

A wonderful production not to be missed, so come and join us on the 13th – 16th July, at Colyton Town Hall.

Tickets are £9.00 each and are available at:

  • Little Shop – Colyton
  • Frank Property – Seaton
  • The Archway Bookshop – Axminster
  • On the door, each evening of the performance
