The Phoenix Players presents

Directed by Sandra Gilbert
"I've made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of short 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 totally free from the restraints of being a Vicar's wife and so starts to belie her name by behaving disgracefully and enjoying being a bit of a grumpy old woman who feels she can do and say exactly what she feels.
However, the return of her eccentric missionary sister Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations force Grace to confront her husband Bardolph's ghost regarding the truth of their marriage. Meanwhile, Sarah, the new female Vicar reveals some very un-clergy-like credentials of her own to Grace's therapist daughter Jo.
Sharp-edged comedy and probing wit, ask whether God can be trusted to do anything right at all. "Or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?"
"Entertaining Angels" was first produced at the Theatre Royal Bath, in September 2009 with Penelope Keith, Benjamin Whitlow and Polly Adams in the cast.
Chichester - "A very sharp and witty comedy".
Edinburgh - "This deceptively profound comic play was thoroughly absorbing and entertaining".
Salford (Lowry) - "A touching and heart-warming piece of of theatre that is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish".
