When Lord God is persuaded by retainer Gabriel to take a holiday in a Devonshire seaside hotel (to get Him out from under His angels’ feet), He looks forward to a fortnight filled with tennis, cream teas and the latest Agatha Christie. But the presence of campaigning atheist Prof. ‘Minty’ Tweddle and her fiancé, caustic drama critic Rex Addison, leads to all manner of supernatural scrapes, japes and narrow escapes and the invention of a hot new global dance craze.
1920's-set comic musical from best-selling author Philip Reeve and playwright/composer Brian Mitchell, writers of the 'Pugs of the Frozen North' stage show and 'The Ministry of Biscuits'. The cast includes comedian Joanna Neary (BBC2s 'Ideal'), Murray Simon ('Underdogs') and Emma Wingrove ('Sweethearts' & 'The Hooligan'). Produced by the Argus-Angel-winning company, whose many awards include OffWestEnd.com's prestigious OffFEST Award for Theatre, Brighton Fringe 2022.
