On this occasion, the theme is Charades!

So, if you think you're good at Charades, come along, enjoy mince pies, sausage rolls and mulled wine and try to outwit your friends with impossible challenges for them to mime. If you don't think you're any good, come along anyway and watch us all making fools of ourselves!

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate’s Townswomens Guild’s Dramatic Society’s Murder Mystery.

Directed by Dave Goodall

Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on opening night, and the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could do wrong 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! This is a fun show  and will be a great pre Christmas laugh for everyone from 7 to 70+

Hay Fever by Noel Coward

Directed by Louise Adams

4th - 7th February

Hay Fever is set in the hall of the Bliss family home. The eccentric Blisses—Judith, a recently retired stage actress, David, a self-absorbed novelist, and their two equally unconventional children— live in a world where reality slides easily into fiction. Upon entering this world, the unfortunate weekend guests—a proper diplomat, a shy flapper, an athletic boxer, and a fashionable sophisticate— are repeatedly thrown into melodramatic scenes wherein their hosts profess emotions and react to situations that do not really exist. The resulting comedic chaos ends only when the tortured visitors tip-toe out the door.
