Ladies Day

by Amanda Whittington

18th to 23rd February

Directed by Alison Baker

Life is one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when they head to Ladies Day at the races. Factory hairnets make way for fascinators as the four friends hit the races for an unforgettable day out.

Secrets are spilled with the champagne and friendships are tested to the limit. Yet as the day unfolds and tempers fray, their accumulator bet keeps quietly winning. If their luck and their nerve holds, the ladies could could hit the jackpot and more.



Following the success of our Junior Theatre Group, which has now been running for over a year, we are planning to start another group in September for twelve to fifteen year olds. The group will meet on Thursday evenings at the Manifest Theatre from 6.30 to 7.30. There will be three terms a year in line with school terms. The cost will be 10.00 per term plus an annual membership fee of 5.00.

Anybody interested please contact Chris on 01473 328770 or 07860 328770 or email to
