“The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate

Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society Production of

“A Christmas Carol”.

A Comedy by David McGillivray & Walter Zerlin Jr.

(With Apologies to Charles Dickens!)

“In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of “A Christmas Carol.” They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favourite (and a few which aren’t), and – in a real Farndale first – rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.”

Sushi for Christmas dinner, a hip hop fanatic Gran and a revealing painting of Dolly Parton; this play has everything, including the kitchen sink. From one of Britain’s most exciting young writers, Tom Wells, The Kitchen Sink is an irresistibly funny modern Yorkshire family drama about big dreams, small towns and looking after each other.
Kath has her hands full. She’s working two jobs and experimenting in the kitchen, and her family’s aspirations aren’t going to plan. Her husband, Martin, is a milkman whose milk float is falling apart as fast as he’s losing customers, son, Billy, doesn’t think his painting is good enough for art school and daughter, Sophie, has shattered her dreams of becoming a Jiu Jitsu teacher by punching her Sensei in the face.
