It’s 1796 and a farmer’s wife is reflecting on another eventful year in A Farmer’s Wife at Christmas.

A TALENTED bunch of Perth actors, musicians and technicians have volunteered for a Christmas show to raise funds to buy 3000 festive hampers for the homeless in WA. 

The annual Give a Feed appeal started in 2011 and this year’s will feature the costume radio play A Farmer’s Wife at Christmas by Jenny Davis in St George’s Cathedral. 

Featuring eight actors from Theatre 180 and 25 singers from the Perth Undergraduate Choral Society, the play follows a farmer’s wife in rural England in 1796 as she prepares for Christmas and looks back over an eventful year, reflecting on village life and all the colourful characters that live there.

Based on a real 18th century journal, it’s a joyful celebration of Christmas with St George’s Cathedral providing a stunning backdrop for the actors and amazing acoustics for the chorus.

All ticket proceeds go directly to buy food hampers for the homeless at Christmas, through Give A Feed.

A Farmer’s Wife at Christmas is on Friday December 16 7.30pm at St George’s Cathedral, St George’s Terrace, Perth. Tix at
