Freshly Squeezed Theatre Company Presents The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth @ The Bay Theatre
May 7 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

“The Farndale Avenue Dramatic Society welcomes you to its thrilling (some would say original in the extreme!) production of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy ‘The Scottish Play!’ (we use ‘The Scottish Play’ instead of the play’s real title, as all you fellow thespians well know it’s terribly unlucky to print or even say ‘Macbeth’).

This production marks the fourteenth of what will (hopefully) be many more classics performed by the Farndale ladies, whose cast of seven bravely tackle the challenges of a play with over forty characters, most of which are men!

We are delighted to have with us our very special guest of honour, Me George Lemon. An accomplished man in the literary field, Mr Plum has come to judge our little play and we are hoping that (at last) this production will guarantee us a place in the drama finals held this year at (wait for it…) Welwyn Garden City.

Let’s hope that everything will go alright on the night this time, unlike our last production, when Romeo lost his tights and Julliet was rushed to casualty after a rather unfortunate fall in the famous balcolny scene…”

The Farndale Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth is the second full length play to be performed by Freshly Squeezed Theatre (Weymouth College’s Foundation Degree in Actor Training student company), whose previous show ‘Lost in Transmission’, a devised piece based on the life of Amelia Earhart, received well-deserved acclaim in January 2015.

This amateur production of “Farndale Avenue…Macbeth” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, LTD
