Play Reading on Friday 20th May: “Ladies’ Day” by Amanda Whittington

The next Play Reading is Friday 20th May 2016 at Manor Gardens starting at 7.30pm.

It is “Ladies’ Day” by Amanda Whittington,

This is an exuberant comedy about four likely lasses from the Hull fish docks on a day trip to the races.

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...

With all it's Yorkshire heart and soul it has all the warmth of Calendar Girls or a Full Monty

There are parts for men too in this comedy! All welcome. Brush up on those northern accents everyone!
