Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett
"This highly entertaining and witty yet moving play was first produced at The Chichester Festival Theatre in 2006 with Penelope Keith in the leading role. As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, 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.
With sharp edged comedy and probing wit, the play asks whether God can be trusted to do anything right at all. “Or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?”
One critic described the play as a comedy that is both entertaining and affecting and although the tone is light, the play asks serious questions about loss, faith and just how well can we ever know the ones we love."
