Hot on the heels of 2017's Murder Mystery, The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of Macbeth staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City Finals.

When tongue-tied solicitor Tristram is sent along to oversee the sale of a large and crumbling house, reputedly a haunted former brothel, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
Hardware tycoon Roland Crabbe and scheming builder Leslie Bainbridge are not easy clients. Roland's wife, Elizabeth is on the brink of leaving him with the help of her brother Mark and his shrinking-violet fiancee, Kitty. Misunderstandings multiply and play out in every corner of the three-storey house (all played on one level).
