A comedy play set around four people visiting Royal Ascot races will be performed in Berrow in November.
Stage 2 Drama will perform Amanda Whittington’s highly entertaining play, ‘Ladies Day’, at Berrow Village Hall from November 30th to December 2nd, with each show starting at 7.30pm.
“The temporary relocation of Royal Ascot to York in 2005 was a memorable event,” says the group’s Ken Redman.
“Local residents who had to struggle with the chaotic traffic conditions it caused will certainly never forget it, but one person’s nightmare is another person’s dream come true, especially if that person is of the female persuasion and needs an excuse to wear an eye-boggling hat.
“This comedy classic features the story of four fish factory workers – Pearl, Shelley, Linda and Jan.”
“Pearl is leaving to spend more time with her husband – not retiring, as she is keen to point out – and on the spur of the moment she decides to celebrate with an all-girls outing to Ladies’ Day at York.”
“After years of fish-filleting, the pals are ready for their big day out, but is Royal Ascot ready for them?”
“The first problem they face is how to get tickets for an event which has been sold-out for months.”
“Horrified by the prices asked by a ticket tout, the foursome are on the point of giving up, but a lucky find by Linda, a woman with an all-consuming passion for Tony Christie, enables them to rub shoulders – however briefly – with high society.”
“The question is: will the ladies hit the jackpot or will they hit rock bottom?”
Ladies’ Day is a sure to be a clear winner in the comedy drama stakes, and tickets are available from Grahame on 01278 782319 or go on their website and send them your ticket order and they will call you back to confirm: http://stage2drama.org/contact/
