Clevedon Players dress rehearsal for Entertaining Angels.

Archant

A Clevedon amateur drama group will perform its latest comedy production in the town next week.

Clevedon Players will take Entertaining Angels to the stage at Princes Hall in Princes Road and shows will be held from April 27-29.

Directed by Richard Everett, the play is set in a garden and stars Grace, a clergy woman wife who has spent her life on her best behaviour.

But after the death of her husband Bardolph, she starts to enjoy the freedom of being able to do and say what she likes, especially when it comes to the new vicar Sarah.

Ruth, Grace’s missionary sister, then returns with some startling revelations, leading to a confrontation with Bardolph’s ghost about the truth of their marriage.

Meanwhile, Sarah reveals some hidden skeletons of her own to Grace’s therapist daughter, Jo.

A spokesman for Clevedon Players said: “Entertaining Angels asks whether God can be trusted to do anything right at all, or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?”

Performances will start at 7.30pm each night.

Tickets, priced £10, can be booked at Souk in the Triangle or by calling 07816 158445 or 01275 873405.
