This uproarious, hilarious comedy introduced the ladies of the fictitious Farndale Avenue Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society. They were hopeful of a place in the Welwyn Garden City Drama finals but events conspired to ensure that everything was not all right on the night.
Kate bravely troops on with her leg in plaster only to find her injuries are more numerous and painful as the night progresses.
Lady Macbeth misses her bus stop and gets carried away by public transport leaving Henry, the stage manager, to step into the breach - still moustachioed!
As if that isn’t enough, the adjudicator announces that they have less than nine minutes to finish most of the final Act. The ladies rise to the occasion and although they may not reach Welwyn Garden City, they come close to doing for Macbeth what Tom Stoppart did for Halmet.
