Ladies Dayby Amanda Whittington
18th to 23rd February 7.30pm
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.

Manifest Theatre - 2 Oxford Road, Manningtree, CO11 1BP
After the success of last years 'Stand Up to Mental Health Comedy Night' at The Headgate Theatre, Ben Maytham has been inspired to raise even more money and support for this amazing charity!
The nights will be split into two parts. The first half will be a One Act Play, which Ben will be directing, this play delves into mental health and how it affects those around us as well as ourselves.
The one act play Ben will be directing is called 'Pretty Pieces' and is about a brother and sister who are trapped on the fringes of society. An event happened to them when they were younger which causes their relationship to be in turmoil. Bringing an emotional and disturbing climax to their story. There are only 2 characters involved and could be ageless. So as long as both actors are similar ages there are no limits.
At the moment we would like to see who would be interested and wants to take part. If you are interested in being involved in either the variety acts or the play (on stage or backstage!) or want to find out more, please email Ben at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know your ideas...how long your piece will be, etc. We are looking for anything and everything that may help to raise awareness of such a wonderful charity.
On SUNDAY 13TH JANUARY from 3.30PM - 5PM at The Manifest Theatre, Ben will hold a Meet and Greet afternoon. Here you can discuss and collaborate your ideas about what you would like to do. He can then explain more about how the two evenings will go and he will be holding the auditions for the one act play 'Pretty Pieces' the same afternoon - No need to prepare anything!
Ben Said, "I am so excited about this.....and can't wait to raise money for such a worthy charity that helps so many people. If you are unable to attend, but are still interested please let me know!
