My Three Angels - by Sam & Bella Spewack & Albert Husson

20-30th November 2019

It is Christmas Eve in the tropics and Felix Dulay, a hopeless storekeeper, is fearfully awaiting the cruel shop owner.

In a twist of fate, only allowable around Christmas, three convicts with a desire to do good, drop in (literally) from above and find touching, funny and inventive ways to save the family and restore justice in time for Christmas Day.
