The Play
 

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

Rehearsals:
In an effort to get in to the spirit of the play, a group of Tamaritans went to the Exeter races in November, and it included a shire horse race with the betting for charity, and a decorated welly competition. Pictures below, rumour that the director came out with a profit.
