Entertaining Angels Summary

Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett

I've made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of light crust pastry. And for what?'

As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on 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, this new 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?'

* The Sunday Times *

'Everett handles the comedy well - Grace's bon mots are very funny ... Keith gets all the best lines - and milks them with miraculous comic timing' - The Guardian
