Current Production ~ Season 4, 2014

My Three Angels by Samuel and Bella Spewack

Directed by Susan Carty

Set in French Guiana in 1910, the story tells of a shopkeeper, his wife and daughter and the three convicts who have been employed to repair the roof. To add to the family's troubles, we have an evil-minded cousin, set to oust the father from his business and his cold-blooded nephew who is jilting his daughter for an heiress.

How things are resolved and who does what, makes this a delightful end of the year story.

To celebrate our 60th year, this, our final production for 2014 is a tribute to our founders Edna and Fergus Chandler. "My Three Angels" was one of the first plays Edna directed for The Basin Theatre Group.
