Spirit Level by Pam Valentine
Directed by Chris Shinn
Famous crime writer Jack Cameron (Chas Barclay
) and his wife Susie (Marcelle Olivier
drown in a boating accident. Jack is refused entry into heaven because he is a card
carrying atheist, so he and Susie return to the country cottage where they had lived. It's a
dull life and their only pleasure is to haunt the estate agent Mark (Paul Lockwood
frighten away any would-be tenants. Things change, however, when Susie persuades
Jack to allow a young couple, Simon, (Robin McKenzie
) an aspiring writer, and Felicity,
) his pregnant wife, to move in. Inevitably, Susie and Jack become drawn
into their lives, and whilst Simon has writer's block, Marcia, (Rosie Wilson
monstrous mother, is doing her best to separate them. Until, that is, Suzie calls upon the
services of her Guardian Angel (Tina Seeley
) who does not turn out to be quite what they
expect. Add these ingredients together and we have a recipe for a fun evening.
