Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington

Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot the year it relocated to York.

Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as the four ditch work, do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter. If their luck holds, they could hit the jackpot – and more besides…

2017 productions

In 2017 we are planning two productions:

Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington to be performed on the 8th, 9th and 10th June.

A play, yet to be announced, on the 30th November, 1st and 2nd December.

More details will be published soon.
