The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery (replacing Key for Two which was originally advertised)
A comedy by David McGillivray & Walter Zerlin Jnr.
Directed by Marilyn Adams
Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are not different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen, does! The scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines forgotten, and the sound effects take on a strange note at times, as the ladies present their ambitious evening's entertainment with the cunning whodunit, "Murder At Checkmate Manor." And just in case the audience should get bored there's a Film and Fashion Show and Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a Prize! The crunch comes in the denouement when the "murderer", about to be revealed, has to rush home to bandage up an injured daughter. But Mrs. Reece, doyenne of the group, rises above the slings and arrows of outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide the final inventive twist.
Box office will be open from Monday 19th February from 10am to 12noon daily (not Sundays) until the end of the run.
