Ladies Day

By Amanda Whittington
Directors: Jane Sheppard & Di Johnston

Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for factory workers Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies’ Day at racing’s day of the year.

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.

Factory hairnets make way for fascinators in this warm-hearted and poignant comedy about a day of fun, untold secrets, optimism and the precious joy of friendship.
