A Table Read Recording: Cherubs by Toby McShane
It’s the last two weeks of 1999 and in an old farmhouse somewhere amongst the hedgerows of Southeast England, two disgraced angels - Montmartre and Gottlieb - plot to get themselves back into Heaven. However, negligence in their work puts them at loggerheads with a new supervisor, Screwtape, who takes a particular interest in sniffing out their many misdemeanours. An attempt to cover up a serious count of bureaucratic skulduggery puts Montmartre and Gottlieb at very real risk of permanent exile, but Screwtape’s self-interest offers them a lifeline. She reveals that a second Great Flood is scheduled to wipe out humanity when the clocks strike midnight on the new millennium. It sets in motion a scheme to kidnap the Chosen One; the last roll of the dice for this volatile trio as they embark on a mission to blackmail God.
