Ladies’ Day

By Amanda Whittington
Director: Shelagh Scarborough

Performances  9 – 14 April 2018
Audition Date: Sunday 21 January 2018 at 2.30 pm

Work, love and life are just one long hard slog for the Yorkshire 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. Off go the hairnets, overalls and wellies, they doll themselves up for the races, drink, a flirt and a flutter. If their luck holds they could hit the jackpot – and more besides!

So come on girls, this is a great modern play with fantastic lively parts to be had and fellas, this is an opportunity for some really brilliant character parts.

Get practising your Yorkshire accents and bring them with you!
