Hot on the heels of panto Aladdin, Doncaster little Theatre is staging a light-hearted comedy - Entertaining Angels - by Richard Everett.

As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband, she is enjoying the new found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations, force Grace to confront the truth of her marriage. This new play recently starred Penelope Keith at Theatre Royal, Bath

Angela Wren plays Grace, the recently widowed vicar’s wife, who, enjoying her new freedom, is faced with some shocking revelations from her sister Ruth, which force her to re-examine her marriage, her beliefs, and her life.

With the voice of the younger generation heard through Grace’s daughter, played by newcomer Vanessa Sullivan and the new vicar, played by Rebekah Upton, this is a sharp-edged and poignant comedy; funny, touching and thought provoking.

It takes a light hearted look at the now and the hereafter, and asks whether God can do anything right at all. Or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?

Barbara Upton said: ”It’s an amusing and thought provoking play to give a smiling start to our 2012 season”.

The show opens on Monday, January 16 and runs to Saturday January 21, at 7.30pm.
