Billingshurst Dramatic Society is proud to present
My Three Angels
A Comedy by Sam & Bella Spewack

Thursday 31st May, Friday 1st June and Saturday 2nd June

Our latest production has been cast! We are pleased to welcome a few new members; some of whom will be appearing on stage, and some will be working away behind the scenes.


My Three Angels is a comedy set in French Guiana in 1910 and takes place over Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. The temperature is 105 in the shade, so a play set at Christmas to be performed in the summer doesn't seem such a daft idea after all!


In brief, the story is about three prisoners at a penal colony in French Guiana who are on loan fixing a roof for a local merchant, the kindly Felix Dulay. Working at Dulay’s home and business on Christmas Eve, the three inmates—Joseph, Jules and Alfred—befriend the merchant, his dutiful wife Emilie and beautiful daughter Marie Louise. The latter is in love with Paul, who is due to visit the Dulays with his demanding uncle, Gaston, a cousin of Felix’s who also happens to own the Dulay business. When the unpleasant Gaston and his timid nephew arrive unexpectedly late on Christmas Eve, the three prisoners decide to ‘help’ Felix and his family in their own fashion.


My Three Angels was originally performed by BDS in 1975. We are dedicating the performance to the memory of our President, Nevin Davies, who passed away in December 2017.
