IF YOU fancy a good laugh to bring cheer to a cold, dark December, there is still time to get to the Salterton Playhouse to see the Salterton Drama Club's tres saucy French farce Chase me up Farndale Avenue, s'il vous plait, by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr., which runs until Saturday, December 6.

There's plenty of mirth and mayhem in this hysterical play, directed by master of comedy Mike Terry. It tells the story of how Farndale Avenue Townswomen's Guild try to impress their counterparts from over the channel but with collapsing doors and beds, disappearing propos, missed cues, inaudible prompts, in-fighting and incompetent sound and lighting operation, things go sadly awry. There is much to enjoy with each actor taking on more than one part, cross-dressing and even can-can dancing.

Karen Bazeley, Fin O'Leary, Lynn Leger, Pam Terry and Richard Gomm will be working tirelessly and heroically to entertain. What better tonic for these gloomy days than to enjoy a good laugh watching their fun-filled performance?

Tickets are on sale, price £7, at Budleigh Salterton Tourist Information Centre, Fore Street - telephone: (01395) 445275. Performances start at 7.45pm.
