SHOW REPORT

Dear Margaret and Peter,

Thank you so much for inviting us to see The Farndale ladies version of Macbeth. I have to admit that I am a little ignorant when it comes to the works of the ‘great bard’ so was delighted to finally see a proper version performed by such a talented team. I must admit I feel that the ladies bit off a bit more than they could chew on this occasion and hope that Kate is now repaired and enjoying her bouncing baby boy, Dawn has finally found her specs. and Minnie has found her voice.

On a more serious note, I spent the whole evening laughing and smiling at the various antics and disasters that befell the poor members of this village society. Peter you were superb as Lady Macbeth and Sandy was perfect as Mrs Reece. The simple set worked well, the costumes were fitting and all the performers obviously enjoyed themselves as much as their audience. I really felt part of this production being greeted by the Farndale Ladies and the fact that they all stayed in character from start to finish added greatly to the standard of the play.

We came away from the production wishing that were we more conversant with the story having missed out on Shakespeare since our school days. Quite a while ago!! I am sure we would have been less confused if we had been more knowledgeable.

Well done to you all for giving us such a wonderful evening of disasters and all the best with “Amy’s View”. Thank you Peter for your kind note.

Yours sincerely,

Jose Harrison.
