Disaster-prone ladies return to the stage
Wednesday, 17th March 2010.
The hilarious antics of the Farndale Avenue Townswomen's Guild Drama Group return to Haverhill Arts Centre from tomorrow for three evenings.
The ladies, who had audiences in stitches with their disaster-ridden efforts to stage Macbeth in 2005 and The Mikado in 2008, have chosen a murder mystery for this outing.
The Murder Mystery Of Checkmate Manor, is the third 'Farndale' play to be staged by Haverhill-based Centre Stage Company.
The 'Farndale' series of plays by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr, which sprung from a comedy originally written for the Edinburgh Festival, are well-known for reducing audiences to helpless laughter.
This one takes the traditional murder mystery - which Centre Stage has a strong track record of performing properly, mainly by Agatha Christie - and shows just how wrong the well-meaning ladies can get it.
The production is from the same team which brought the previous two to the Arts Centre, director Bernard Sipple and a cast led by Pam Lawrence, as the ever-resilient Mrs Reece, Sue Almond and Debbi Walters.
Tickets are available for the performances on Thursday, Friday or Saturday at 7.30pm, from the box office on 01440 714140, at £8 (£7 concessions).
