Our next production:

Ladies' Day

written by Amanda Whittington
directed by Caroline Chapman

Sunday 26th November - Saturday 2nd December

2.30 p.m. Sunday matinee,
7.30 p.m. Monday - Saturday

Life, work and love are one hard slog for four fish-filleting women, until Linda finds four tickets to Royal Ascot the year it relocates to York. Out go hairnets, overalls and wellies as they ditch work and do themselves up to the nines and head to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter. Shelley wants to meet a rich man, whilst Pearl spills the beans to her devoted mother, Jan. If their luck holds, they could hit the jackpot and more besides.

Amanda Whittington's other plays include Be my Baby, Satin 'n' Steel, Bollywood Jane, The Wills's Girls and The Thrill of Love. Following the success of Ladies' Day, she went on to write a sequel called Ladies Down Under. This play is full of Yorkshire warmth and exuberant up-to-the-minute comedy.

Tickets on sale from the Gala Theatre box office, in person, by telephone (03000 266 600) or online (booking fee applies online). Tickets also available on the door at the City Theatre, subject, to availability.
