Ladies’ Day

Directed by Ray Haresign, our August 2029 production was Ladies’ Day, written by Amanda Whittington and presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

We would like to thank all our fabulous audiences for the fantastic feedback we received on this brilliant, funny and feel-good show!

Life is one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when they head to Ladies Day at the races. Factory hairnets make way for fascinators as the four friends hit the races for an unforgettable day out.

Secrets are spilled with the champagne and friendships are tested to the limit. Yet as the day unfolds and tempers fray, their accumulator bet keeps quietly winning. If their luck and their nerve holds, the ladies could could hit the jackpot – and more.
