Our final play for the 2020 season is Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett. It will be directed by Jennifer Willison, who directed this year's brilliant, Nell Gwynn.
Can God be trusted to do anything right at all? Or is the whole thing a “divine exercise in trial and error”?
As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. By her own count, she’s poured two hundred thousand cups of tea, made four thousand six hundred quiches and baked two tonnes of light crust pastry. Now, following the death of her husband, she is enjoying the new-found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases.
But complications are just around the corner as Grace’s eccentric missionary sister returns with some disturbing revelations. Grace is forced to confront the memory of her husband and the truth of their marriage whilst the new vicar reveals some very un-clergy-like credentials of their own.
A very English comedy that’s profound, absorbing and thoroughly entertaining.
BY RICHARD EVERETT
DIRECTED BY JENNIFER WILLISON

Our 2020 season has something for everyone, including Roald Dahl’s The Witches adapted for the stage by David Wood. The Witches will be directed by Jewell Johnson.
When Roald Dahl was eight years old, he and four friends were caught putting a dead
mouse in a jar of Gobstoppers in the local sweet shop - and were thoroughly thrashed for it.
This incident sparked young Dahl’s imagination and the seeds that were to become some of his most famous stories were sown.
In the ballroom of a seaside hotel, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Children gather for their annual meeting. The Society’s nefarious purpose? The elimination
of every child in England! Can a young boy, his Grandmother and his pet mice defeat the evil
Grand High Witch and foil the Society’s plan?
We’d love to invite all Grans and Grandpas, Mums and Dads, Aunties and Uncles, kids and
grandkids to this magical adaptation of Dahl’s deliciously wicked delight.
A warning though: no one is too young or too old for this play.
