My Three Angels PlaySynopsis

The year is 1910. 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 whose roof is in desperate need of maintenance. On their way from France is an evil-minded cousin who wants to oust the father of this family from the business and his cold-blooded nephew, who is jilting the father’s daughter for an heiress. The three convicts (2 murderers and 1 swindler)”take on” the visitors. All three convicts have warm hearts and are passionate believers in true justice. Possessing every criminal art and penal grace, they set matters right. In doing so, they redeem themselves as real life angels to the grateful family.
