What Could Possibly Go Wrong………..
Long before The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong in which an amateur dramatic society experiences the horrors of what can go wrong right in front of a live audience, the fictional Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society have been resolutely presenting plays in which the scenery collapses, cues are missed, lines are forgotten and sound effects create illusions the director never imagined.
Boxford Drama Group has previously produced two of the side-splitting Farndales, ‘The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale Castle‘ in 2006 and ‘Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society murder Mystery’ in 2008, both directed by Jane Lindekam who brings back the Farndale Ladies to Boxford Village Hall with ‘Chase Me Up Farndale Avenue, S’il Vous Plait’ by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr.
This time the Farndale Ladies are attempting a French farce in the style of Boeing Boeing with complicated romantic encounters and no less than four doors for the cast of characters to run in and out of while trying to stick to the complicated script whilst about them props go missing and pieces of the set collapse resulting in an evening of hilarious horrors and cock-ups galore.
Boxford Drama Group presents Chase Me Up Farndale Avenu, S’il Vous Plait at the Boxford Village Hall on 30th, 31st March and 1st April.
Tickets are £13.00 which includes supper and will be available from the Boxford Post Office from Saturday 25th February 2017.
