Matinee Play – 21 May 2017


“We Found Love And An Exquisite Set Of Porcelain Figurines Aboard The SS Farndale Avenue”
Written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin.
Directed by Vivienne Scott.
Follow Mrs. Reece and her troupe in this play within a play and laugh.
Mrs. Reece, the indomitable and insufferable leader of the Farndale Avenue Dramatic Society (think Hyacinth Bucket) and her troupe embark on another production. Stay on your chair if you can as they crash from crisis to miss-managed crisis. Far too cleverly written to be silly, too well directed to be slapstick, Mrs. Reece and her crew will have you in stitches. We will carry you to Naples, or was it Nairobi? We won’t vouch for the singing, though the dancing is good. The audience menu may sound tame compared to the haute cuisine on the SS Farndale Avenue, but believe me, you’re better off.  And as for the cocktails? Poor Gordon!

We pride ourselves on selling a great night out, or afternoon. Good food, good entertainment, at the Manning Valley’s best kept secret, enchanting Upper Lansdowne.

 Afternoon tea and the show – Please be Seated by 2-30 pm. Doors open 2-00 pm.
