SYNOPSIS:  Elsie and Norm have decided to have a bit of a bash at culture by staging a production of Macbeth in their living-room. After a spot of judicious re-writing by Norm to make it snappier and more punchy, and undaunted by the large cast, Elsie and Norm set out to act "one of the greatest pieces of literature what has ever been wrote in the English language", playing all the characters between them. The hilarious results set Shakespeare spinning in his grave!

Kaye has been kidnapped by the beautiful, but sad and lonely Snow Queen and has taken him to her ice palace in Lapland to be the son she has always wished for. After waiting a year, Gerda decides to go and search for him. She meets many wonderful and helpful people but has no luck until a wise gypsy points her in the right direction.
