“Hilarious moments of delightful inventive silliness …” The Guardian
In festive mood, the F.A.H.E.T.G.D.S. ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with their version of A Christmas Carol. Enthusiasm their middle name, and with the virile support of stage-manager Gordon, the cast present a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favourite (and a few which aren’t) under the ever-battling leadership of Thelma and Mrs Reece. In truly sparkling form, Mrs Reece engineers some novel audience participation while bravely contending with the chattily-intrusive PA system, and two specially-composed songs provide unique, show-stopping opportunities for the ladies to wrap their vocal cords and feet around.
Hilary May directs familiar Barnstormer actors in a laughter-rich pre-amble to Christmas.
