Broseley’s amateur dramatics group brings us another hysterically funny comedy from the Farndale Avenue suite, penned by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr
BroADS presented us with the ladies’ version of Macbeth a year or two back.
This one orbits around the efforts of the Townswomen’s Guild’s efforts to mount a sci-fi thriller: in their usual hopeless and hilariously funny fashion of course.
“They came from Mars and landed outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in time for the Townswomen’s Guild’s coffee morning”
The comedy itself is not a long one, but what a title!
Laugh yourselves silly at Broseley’s Birchmeadow. Tickets available from October 1st at Downes’s in Broseley High Street or via our website.
We can hardly wait until the BroADS crew heads out to the launch pad and the Red Planet. The countdown’s begun, and the excitement’s building.

“They came from Mars and landed outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in time for the Townswomen’s Guild’s coffee morning” is the title … nearly as long as the first act !
One wonders just how the Guild is going to make out this time – hilariously incompetently, no doubt.
Ed Strong use unique storytelling lyrical structures, indie guitar hooks, pounding drum beats and weird bass lines that offer no apologies for making you want to dance.
