November 13th-16th 2024

Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington
Directed by Julie Petrucci and Chris Shinn



In the summer of 2005, for one year only, Royal Ascot moved north! This is the backdrop for Amanda Whittington's exuberant comedy drama about four female fish factory filleters from Hull who decide to take a celebratory day trip to the races.

Work, love and life seem mundane for Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda, or are they? The four decide to celebrate the imminent early retirement of their co-worker, Pearl, and get all dolled up and head off to the races. We all know that having a little flutter on the horses is more a game of chance and good luck, and that is what the girls have as they arrive without tickets. But as fate would have it, Linda finds a purse with entry tickets in it, and they use them. As the day goes on and the champagne is consumed, each discloses that little piece of their lives that they have kept hidden. They also come across a variety of characters, from an arrogant TV pundit to a sensitive jockey. Choosing random horses named after Tony Christie hits, the four ladies place an accumulator bet, and if their luck holds, they just might hit the jackpot! Place your bets to find out!

Julie Petrucci and Chris Shinn direct this entertaining comedy. There are four great parts for women, and a great opportunity for versatility in the six male roles, which will be played by one or two men. Open auditions will take place at Tillage Hall on Sunday 9th June from 2pm - full details can be found here, or contact Julie at secretarywtc@icloud.com
