Blessed Assurance

by Laddy Sartin

It is the turbulent Freedom Summer of 1964. Olivia, the cook for the Whitehouse Café, has shocked her small southern town by marching up the courthouse steps demanding to register to vote. Because of this she is attacked from all sides, even by those closest to her heart. Harlan, the owner of the café, who is like a son to Olivia, accuses her of listening to outside agitators and following along “like cows being led to slaughter.” This damnation incites Olivia to challenge Harlan’s personal beliefs, and his allegiance to her, by sitting at the counter of the café where she has worked most of her life and requesting to be served. When Harlan asks her what she thinks she’s doing, she says “I think they call it a sit-in!”

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of A Christmas Carol”

Written by: David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin, Jr.

Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

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 favorite (and a few which aren't), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs.

Farndale ladies are renowned across the globe for their famously incompetent performances. Their bumbling charm is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit with the hilarious Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of A Christmas Carol. This heartwarming and engagingly goofy comedy portrays the attempts of four ladies of the society and one slightly reluctant man to get through a production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol that is disaster-prone in the lovable way of small theater productions. From broken-down transportation to collapsing scenery, line mixups to infighting, the ladies soldier through the mishaps like the troopers they are, having a jolly good time along the way and bringing the audience right along with them.
