Farndale Avenue Housing Estate
Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery
It is with some trepidation GRADS have agreed to allow the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild to stage a murder mystery.
The reputation of the ladies of this infamous dramatic society (along with their much put upon stage manager!) go before them but none the less, The Graffham Rustics have agreed to lend some of their actors to help them along – so there will be some familiar faces on the Leconfield Hall stage this May as “FAHATGDS” stage “Murder at Checkmate Manor”.
David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr. have written 10 Farndale plays starting in 1976 with the ladies' version of "Macbeth" for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This murder mystery is the third of the F.A.H.E.T.G. series and premiered in 1980 and the Farndale ladies are known and loved worldwide. For three nights The Graffham Rustics Amateur Dramatic Society (GRADS) become the FAHETG Dramatic Society!

New Venue for 2015
GRADS will be at a new venue for their May production. After receiving feedback from some potential audience members about the challenges of access, parking, and convenience of location, The Rustics have decided to do this production at The Leconfield Hall in Petworth. This new venue provides GRADs audiences with raked seating,
a separate downstairs bar, disabled access direct from the street with lift access to the auditorium, a hearing aid loop induction system as well as plenty of free car parking directly next to the venue. The Rustics will be back in Graffham at The Empire Hall for our November production of 2015, with performances shared between the two venues. Rehearsals for all productions will be located at a variety of venues
The Rustics are always keen to recruit new active members, whether to act on the stage, help with scenery, sound, lighting costume, makeup, publicity, run the bar etc. If you are interested in taking part, please email email@example.com
