It may sound like the cast list for a ‘Carry On’ film – but a retired doctor, former army major and caterer are the real jobs of three cast members in a Blockley production.

The comedy ‘Entertaining Angels’ will open this Thursday (February 23).

The story is about the aftermath of the death of a vicar, the Reverend Bardolph Thomas, and its impact on his widow Grace and her daughter Jo.

In the BAD Company production, the deceased vicar is played by former medical consultant Charles Redman.

His widow Grace is played by Jane Grafton who used to be a major in the British Army and daughter Jo is played by Caroline Gee who works in the Cake & Gift Shop at the Cotswold Barn, Longborough.

After spending a lifetime on her best behaviour, Grace is confronted by the unexpected arrival of her eccentric missionary sister, the curiosity of her psychotherapist daughter and some disturbing revelations.

The outcome is a transformation of Grace’s character - from a dutiful vicar’s wife into an independently minded lady who says and does what she wants.

“Entertaining Angels” is directed by Jo Knight and the cast also includes Sandra Gee and Tracy Humphreys.

It can be seen at St George’s Hall, Blockley, from Thursday to Saturday, February 23 - 25.

Evening performances are at 7.30pm and there is a matinee at 2pm on the Saturday.

Tickets are available from Blockley Shop. For more information visit:
