As she comes to terms with the sudden death of her husband Bardolph, she also faces an uncertain future. Her daughter’s marriage has gone wrong, the new vicar – a woman - is measuring up the vicarage for curtains and her sister shows no sign of going home.

Set in the garden of an English vicarage and peppered with humour, Entertaining Angels cleverly explores the lives of these four women as they face up to the past and forge a new future.

This thought-provoking play explores some big questions of forgiveness and absolution against the backdrop of the Christian faith as Grace, played with confidence by the talented Lesley McMaster, chats to her dead husband in the potting shed and discovers some tricky truths.

A notably strong cast under the direction of Ian Quickfall makes this a joy to watch as the story romps along, ensuring the right balance between pace and pathos.
