SIMONE Perry of Hatfield Heath’s drama group Heath Players has some large shoes to fill in her latest role. The Players are performing Richard Everett’s ‘Entertaining Angels’ and Simone is playing the part of Grace (a role previously played on the professional stage by Penelope Keith of ‘To The Manor Born’ fame).
In this touching and thought-provoking comedy, the action takes place shortly after the funeral of Bardolph, the local vicar and Grace’s husband, who has just passed away.
Not only does Grace have to come to terms with her bereavement and the nature of Bardolph’s passing, but she is also struggling to deal with a visit from her sister, Ruth.
Added to this, Grace is faced with moving out of the Vicarage to allow the new priest-in-charge to take up residence.
During the course of Ruth’s visit a long hidden secret emerges which shatters Grace’s memories. Her daughter, Jo, a professional counsellor (with problems of her own), does her best to build bridges between the sisters and to help the new minister work through dilemmas of their own.
Despite all the emotional trauma, there are plenty of laughs along the way as we follow the trials and tribulations of the characters.
Mark Ratcliff directs the cast that includes, as well as Simone, Heath regulars Jaki Newman and Steve Foster with Chrissie Waites and Vanessa Wood making their Heath Players’ debuts.
Performances are at 8pm in Hatfield Heath Village Hall on 15-17 March 2018.
