Our February 2020 production will be...


A hilarious comedy with only a passing nod to Shakespeare's masterpiece!
Directed by Rob Bowen.
The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society ladies mount an assault on the classic tragedy Macbeth. Their production - original in the extreme - should guarantee them a place in the drama finals in Welwyn Garden City after 9 months of painstaking rehearsals. The intrepid ladies unique blend of misplaced enthusiasm, ego, inappropriate casting, and bad acting ensure that what can go wrong does go wrong, and results in a series of hilarious mistakes from beginning to end.

Farndale... Macbeth was first presented in1976 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it was an award-winning sell-out, later touring the country to similar acclaim for the next year. It was presented again at the Fringe in 1983.

In May 2020 we will present for the Wycombe Arts Festival
an open-air production of ...

Twelfth Night
By William Shakespeare
At Pipers Corner School, Gt. Kingshill, HP15 6LP
Thurs 14th May & Fri 15th May at 7:30
Sat 16th May at 2:30 and 7:30
Wed 20th - Sat 23rd May at 7:30
Directed by Ros Curtis.
Twelfth Night, or 'What You Will' was written in 1601 for the close of the Christmas season, when traditionally the normal order of things was upended with the appointment of a 'Lord of Misrule'

It is one of the best known of Shakespeare's comedies, having at its heart unrequited love, both hilarious and heartbreaking. It has everything, a storm and a shipwreck, separated twins, cross-dressing, rowdy drunks, music and songs, and a pompous puritan who hates all merrymaking.

There is inevitably the usual confusion and misunderstanding before time untangles the knots with the customary happy ending.
