WE FOUND LOVE AND AN EXQUISITE SET OF
PORCELAIN FIGURINES ABOARD THE
SS FARNDALE AVENUE (2000)
Written By David McGillvary & Walter Zerlin Jnr
Directed By Michael Veltman
Flushed, and following on from the dizzy heights of their successes, the stalwart veterans of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society are poised to conquer yet another dramatic idiom.
In romantic vein, with their latest production, set aboard the luxury ocean-going liner SS Farndale Avenue for their excursion into the world of thirties musical comedy "a la Noel and Gertie", the ladies prove that the age of elegance, glamour and enchantment is not dead.....wel, not quite anyway.
Unfortunately, circumstances almost beyond their control threaten to wreck the evening's entertainment. Stage Manager Gordon who manages almost everything from Flapper to Noel Nightingale, playwright extra-ordinaire, but never quite the stage, and a double-booked venue that requires all Mrs Reece's recources to rid them of a persistent DJ. Nonetheless the ladies and Gordon, in true Farndale form, soar above such mundane matters to present a couple of catchy numbers and a stunning underwater sequence!
