Synopsis

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of "Macbeth" is an uproarious, hilarious comedy for three men and seven women, introducing the intrepid ladies of the FAHETG 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 National Drama Finals at Welwyn Garden City, after nine months of painstaking rehearsals. However, under the carefully mascarad eye of Mr. George Peach, adjudicator for the Townswomen's Guild Drama Festival Area Finals, 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 stop and gets carried away by public transport so that Henry must manfully step into the breach - minus spectacles but still mustachioed. And as if this isn't enough, Mr. Peach announces they have only 8 minutes left in which to finish most of the final act, otherwise they will be disqualified. As usual the ladies rise to the occasion.
