THE Phoenix Players bring Richard Everett's award-winning comedy 'Entertaining Angels' to The Kings Theatre in Gloucester this month. 

From Wednesday, November 15 to Saturday, November 18, enjoy the show's dry wit and numerous plot twists which will keep you entertained from start to finish. 

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 freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases.

That is until her eccentric missionary sister Ruth returns with some disturbing revelations, which force Grace to confront her husband's ghost and the truth about their marriage.

The story captures neatly and makes great comic use of the friction which often arises when families come together after a bereavement. 

Every character has a ghost that needs laying to rest and a skeleton in their closet. 

Although the tone of the play is light, it also explores deep questions about life, love, family and faith.

There are a few religious themes underlying parts of the humour, but this isn’t a play for which you need to understand any religion, or indeed to adhere to one. 

Tickets are £9-11, call the box office on 0333 666 3366.
