FORFAR Dramatic Society has started 2013 in style with a double-bill which is currently running in The Plough in Market Street.

They are performing a double bill of two hilarious comedies tonight (Wednesday) which followed last night’s performances.

The first play is ‘A Bolt from the Blue’ by David Tristrum.

Edward Jones was just an ordinary man, on the eve of his 40th birthday, doing ordinary things.

What happened next was, quite literally incredible. It defies belief. It defies logic. It defies the fundamental laws of science and nature. But it happened and it came like a bolt from the blue!

This zany, fast moving, hilariously funny play will make you laugh and cry as the cast enact the adventures of Edward as he struggles to come to terms with his life changing experience.

This is followed by a good old Scots comedy, entitled ‘Hogmanay’, from the pen of the late James Scotland, one of the country’s best loved comedy playwrights.

This hilarious Scots’ comedy is about a pair of 16th century hopelessly incompetent, spell-casting monks.

Thanks to getting the ingredients consistently wrong, they manage to materialise some strange and amorous women in their monastery. The merry monks’ attempt to ensure the ladies keep their clothes on, while at the same time making sure that the Abbot doesn’t find out, keeps the laughs coming.

Tickets costing £8 for adults and £6 for concessions can be purchased in a number of ways.
