Chase Me Up Farndale Avenue, S’il Vous Plaît!
24-27 October 2018
French farces are madcap and bewildering plays at the best of times, but in the hands of the well meaning housewives of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society the chaos reaches new heights of absurdity.
Under the hit-and-miss direction of the formidable Mrs. Reece the ladies do their best to contend with double entendres and innuendos aplenty, although they’re clearly fighting an uphill battle!
However, what they may lack in skill they make up for with enthusiasm… and sheer British bloody-mindedness!
Soon forgotten lines are the least of everyone’s problems as props go missing, technical cues come in at the wrong times in the wrong places, and the set starts to become even more unstable than the actresses! But the show must go on!
