In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol. They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren’t), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.
“Another classic dramatic massacre that enthralls.” – Independent
“Not since the Monty Python mob dressed up as The Batley Townswomen’s Guild and re-enacted the Battle of Pearl Harbor with their handbags have I tittered so much.” – The Daily Mail
