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.

The production is on Saturday, October 19 at Newton Poppleford village hall.

Tickets are £12, which includes a fish and chip supper.

Refreshments will be available and there will be a raffle.

For tickets and more information ring 01395 568897.

Another performance of the play, also in aid of FORCE, will take place at the Cygnet Theatre, Friar's Gate, Exeter, from Thursday, October 24 until Saturday, October 26.

There will be three evening performances and a Saturday matinee.

Tickets are £10 for adults and £7 for children aged 16 and under. Children under three go free.

Tickets are available from the Cygnet Theatre website, box office 01392 277189.
