The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of Macbeth by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin, Jnr

Directed by Sue Mortimer

24 June 2015 - 4 July 2015


Macbeth as you have never seen it before! This time your favourite Farndale characters, Mrs Reece (the leader of the ladies), Thelma (the wannabe leader), and young Felicty are joined by Minnie & Kate. It would seem only Felicity really knows what she is supposed to be doing and even she's suspect!

This will bring tears to your eyes as the ladies valiantly attempt to overcome set, sound and light failures. The Producer loses what's left of his hair as he realises they can't act! The stagehand, Henry, has to take on the role of Lady Macbeth when one member of the cast gets on the wrong bus and all of this in front of the Adjudicator!
