Farndale Ave … Production of “A Christmas Carol”

by David McGillivray & Walter Zerlin Jnr

In festive mood, the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of "A Christmas Carol." With great enthusiasm, the cast present a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favourite (and some which aren't) under the ever-battling leadership of Thelma and Mrs Reece.

Throughout the play, Mrs Reece engineers some novel audience participation while bravely contending with a chattily-intrusive PA system.

A review of the play describes it as "another classic, dramatic massacre with an awesome, convincing idiocy that enthralls, despite one's better judgment."
