Entertaining Angels is a deceptively profound and comic play which focuses on Grace, a former clergy wife, who is enjoying her new-found freedom following the death of her husband, Bardolph. After spending a lifetime of being on her best behaviour she can now do and say exactly as she pleases.
Joining Grace in this latest stage of her life is her therapist daughter, Jo; her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth and Sarah the new female vicar with some very un-clergy-like credentials. As the action progresses, Grace faces some disturbing revelations and is forced to confront Bardolph’s ghost and the truth of their marriage.
Richard Everett’s clever, funny and touching play asks whether God can be trusted to do anything at all “or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?”
