A BLACK comedy set in a funeral directors is coming to The New Hall, Tiverton, next month.

Jack Williams’ Accidents and Guarding Angels, to be performed by the Tiverton Dramatic Society, is set in Reeper Funeral Services, run by George Reeper and his daughter Vera.

They haven’t had an easy life since George’s first wife died in a car accident but they’ve now found happiness with their respective partners, Fenella and Charlie.

Unfortunately things are not running smoothly again due to mishaps with the deceased, a boggled apprentice, an accidental decorator, a customer who’s left her decaying husband in the car outside and a very nervous police officer.

Jack Williams is no stranger to the stage in Devon.

He began his introduction to theatre appearing on stage in Tiverton. He’s been part of many varied productions including The Diary of Ann Frank, Guys and Dolls, Little Shop of Horrors, Dad’s Army and Fiddler on the Roof.

Accidents and Guarding Angels will run from October 22 to 25, at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £7 for the opening night, and £8 for the others, and are available from Twyford Photography.
