There Must Be An Angel was written by Tiverton playwright Colin Barrow, and the show will raise funds for the cancer charity FORCE.

The play is set in a village church, with the action unfolding over the course of a week, with ghostly appearances and comic twists and turns.

Mr Barrow has more than 40 years of wide-ranging theatre experience, both onstage and behind the scenes.

He wrote the play especially for FORCE, in gratitude for their support of his sister who died of cancer three years ago.
