Cast in Place for My Three Angels

Director Jeralyn Shattuck has announced the cast for My Three Angels, a "wicked" Christmas comedy by Sam and Bella Spewack. Gaslight's production will be directed by Jeralyn Shattuck.

First, the Plot:

The scene is French Guiana, a region where on Christmas day the temperature has graciously dropped to 104 degrees. Three convicts are employed as roofers by a family (Felix Ducotel, his wife Emilie and daughter Marie-Louise), whose roof is in desperate need of maintenance. On the way from France is evil-minded cousin Henro, to oust Felix from his business, and his cold-blooded nephew Paul, who is jilting the father's daughter for an heiress. Convicts Jules, Joseph and Alfred—two of them murderers, the third a swindler—take the visitors on. All three have warm hearts and are passionate believers in true justice. Possessing every criminal art and penal grace, they set matters right and in doing so redeem themselves as real life angels to the grateful family.
