THE FARNDALE AVENUE HOUSING ESTATE TOWNSWOMEN'S GUILD DRAMATIC SOCIETY MURDER MYSTERY
THE FARNDALE AVENUE HOUSING ESTATE TOWNSWOMEN'S GUILD DRAMATIC SOCIETY MURDER MYSTERY by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr
Stand by for mayhem as the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society - aka the Nantwich Players - stage their latest production! The four grandes dames of the society prepare to master all fourteen roles in 'Murder at Checkmate Manor', assisted only by long-suffering stage manager Gordon and a magnificently-misplaced confidence.
Scenery collapses, sound effects strike strange notes, cues are missed wholesale, and quick changes are anything but. But the ladies soldier on, providing a fashion show and quiz (complete with prize) along the way.
'The Murder Mystery' is one of the celebrated series of Farndale Avenue spoof plays by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr, and is directed by Jerry Park.
Performances at 7.45pm 12 - 20 July 2013
Tickets on sale at Nantwich Tourist Office (01270 600727) from 24th June
ROUGH JUSTICE by Terence Frisby.
James Highwood, the host of a popular television programme called 'British Justice', is on the stand at the Old Bailey, accused of murdering his severely handicapped child. He refuses his solicitor's plea to obtain legal representation and conducts his own defence, admitting responsibility but pleading manslaughter.
His claim that the jury alone is responsible for the verdict brings him into conflict with the judge, while his battle to have his intentions understood brings him into conflict with the prosecutor, a well-know Catholic pro-lifer. There is also the question of whether Highwood actually killed his child after all.
Directed by Simon Porter, performances will be at 7.45pm, 6 - 14 September 2013.
Tickets on sale Tuesday 20th August at Nantwich Civic Hall (01270 600727)
