Wisbech theatre to host Macbeth spoof which shows ‘how many things can go wrong on stage’
ACTORS will forget their lines, incorrect props will be used and the set will appear backwards during an error-strewn play in Wisbech next week.
That’s because Downham Market Sixth Sense Theatre Company is putting on a performance to demonstrate just how many things can go wrong on stage.
The company, which is made up of students from Downham Market High School and Sixth Form, will perform The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth.
The comedy, written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Junior, is a spoof of Shakespeare’s Macbeth - known as The Farndale Avenue Production of Macbeth, for short.
Amalia Ford, from the company, said: “The story is basically a play within a play and shows how many things can go wrong on stage and backstage.

“This includes actors forgetting lines, the set being backwards, having to improvise around the wrong props, actors having injuries such as a broken leg and having to dance with crutches and actors having to go on without their glasses.”
The play, directed by Cate Markwell, comes to the Angles Theatre on Monday. It will also be staged at Nordelph Village Hall tomorrow (July 21).
