The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery

Every drama group has experienced the horrors of what can go wrong on the night and the ladies of the F.A.H.E.T.G. Dramatic Society are no different, with the possible exception that almost everything that could happen, does. As the ladies present their ambitious evening’s entertainment with the cunning whodunit, “Murder At Checkmate Manor”, scenery collapses, cues are missed and the whole production seems jinxed, and just in case the audience gets bored, they’ve included a Fashion Show and a Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a prize!
