About the play

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of “Macbeth” is an uproarious, hilarious comedy for 3 men and 7 women, introducing the intrepid ladies of F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society, together with their daring Producer, David, and Stage Manager, Henry. Their production – original in the extreme – of the classic tragedy Macbeth should guarantee them a place in the Drama Finals at Wellyn Garden City after nine months of painstaking rehearsals. However, under the carefully mascara'd eye of the adjudicator Mr George Peach, events conspire to ensure that everything will not be all right on the night. Injured Kate bravely troupes on with a leg in plaster only to find her injuries more painful and numerous as the evening progresses; Lady Macbeth misses her bus and gets carried away by public transport, who can take her place? And, as if this isn't enough, Peach announces that they have eight and a half minutes left in which to finish most of the final Act otherwise they are disqualified! As usual the ladies rise to the occasion – they may not come close to Wellyn Garden City but they come close to doing for Macbeth what Tom Stoppard did for Hamlet.
