“They Came from Mars and Landed Outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in Time for
the Townswomen’s Guild’s Coffee Morning” - directed by Malcolm Wardle
The Farndale Avenue ladies attempt lift-off with their Dramatic Society’s unique
production of this sci-fi thriller. But, needless to say, high-tech effects (that
have some reassuringly homely touches), coupled with the inability and disability
of certain members of the group, ensure that the cast remain firmly on the ground
- some more than others.
As ever, the resourceful Mrs Reece brilliantly circumnavigates the pitfalls as she
steers the company into orbit, through space to genteel tea on Mars where the nail-biting
action is interrupted to present the Flower Arranging Award.
