After the success of The Misty Moon Film Society’s Spring tour of A Day In The Lives Of Frankie Abbott, we have been asked to perform the play at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. So we have launched an Indiegogo Campaign to help get FA up to the land of haggis, kilts, malt whiskey and deep fried Mars bars. Please have a look at the campaign and if you can help us in anyway, even just to like and share it on social media that would be Bloody Brilliant. Frankie Goes To Edinburgh…………
