'The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of Macbeth'
by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr.
MURDER! TREACHERY! MAYHEM!
... and that’s just the script! Yes, the indomitable ladies of Farndale are at it again, and this time the victim is no less than William Shakespeare. The ladies of Farndale are to theatre what car crashes are to TV (fun to watch but you wince when they collide). With Lady Macbeth having taken the wrong public transport and ending up so far away from the theatre she's unlikely to make the curtain down, let alone the start of the play, the male stage manager has to step into the breach and he faces a female Macbeth! And that's just the start....
