About The Play

Written by Sam and Bella Spewack.

Marc Colson returns to the Director's chair following the success of Agatha Christie's 'And Then There Were None' in March 2016.
It is Christmas Eve in the tropical prison colony of Cayenne. Felix Dulay, a hopeless storekeeper, is fearfully awaiting the owner, Gaston. Providence has given the Dulays three guardian angels — three convicts! In no time they have cooked Christmas lunch — and Felix's books — and will loose their own executioner on Gaston for his cruel behaviour!

Director's Notes

So following the success of And Then There Were None last year I was asked what I'd like to direct next. Well, A long time ago in a valley not far from here (Sidmouth) and at the tender age of 19 I tried my hands at directing my first play, My Three Angels. I can't say I did it justice back then but fortunately I had a good cast who pulled me through it. And here we are - a little (lot) older and a little wiser so I thought I'd revisit this endearing and amusing comedy. Again I have been spoilt with a great cast who have brought the characters to life and who have been great fun to work with.

One of the challenges with this play is the set and over the last 8 weeks we've witnessed the steady change of bring my vision to reality. The team of set builders have done an amazing job as have the team of people who have put together the props and costumes. A real team effort.

Thanks for your continued support of our wonderful theatre. I hope you enjoy your evening with us. As for my next play....... Watch this space

Chairman's Notes

Welcome once again to our theatre. We have for you tonight a very delightful comedy. This play was first performed in 1955 with Cyril Luckham taking the part of Felix Dulay. By coincidence he was a patron of this theatre in the early days of its existence. While we have not got Cyril, we have a very experienced cast to perform this play and another new face in the person of Mark Rose making his debut with us.

I hope you have got our letter letting you know what our future plans are for the development of the theatre and what we hope to do to make your visit to us a more pleasant experience. If you would like to make a financial donation or have any ideas that you would like to see over and above what we are proposing then please speak to myself or a member of the committee.

Stop press. We have also been nominated for an award by NODA, (National Operatic and Drama Association.), for our production of Gaslight. Well done everybody!
