East Midlands Tour (2 May - 1 June 2013)

Reverend Stephen Parr is the new vicar in a small rural parish. Facing a dwindling congregation, an uncompromising Church Warden and a lonely widower, his attempts to please everyone - including his wife Mel - are proving rather difficult. Enter Kevin, an enigmatic stranger who turns up on the doorstep of the church, seeking a place to shelter. Entertaining Angels is a humorous and touching look at the role of the Church in contemporary village life, and what it really means to be a Christian in the 21st Century.
