While the enthusiasm of the Farndale Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society seems to outstrip their thespian abilities, these ladies and 'honorary lady' valiantly attempt to portray a wide array of favourite Dickensian characters from 'A Christmas Carol'. Unfortunately, nothing runs smoothly and the cast are forced to contend with an intrusive PA system, incompetent stagehands and failing scenery, plus the ongoing rivalry between the two main actors.
