Ladies Day 17th – 19th November inclusive
Our November production at the Cecil Hepworth Playhouse in Walton is Ladies Day.
Elaine Sesemann is doing a fantastic job in her directing debut and rehearsals are going really well.
The play is a delightful heart warming comedy which looks at the lives of 4 Yorkshire women (Pearl, Shelley, Jan and Linda) who work in a fish processing factory in Grimsby. Pearl is about to retire and lets slip that she has always wanted to go to Royal Ascot, Ladies Day which happens to be at York racecourse in 2005 when our play is set.
At the racecourse, chance encounters with lost purses, TV announcers, jockeys and lost loves allows an insight into the regrets, hopes and shattered dreams of the women who are all searching for a better and more fulfilling life than the dull lives they actually lead. It is a bitter sweet, poignant modern fairy tale which will leave the audience with a smile on their faces and tears in their eyes, and all the better for having met Pearl, Linda Shelley and Jan!
The Box Office will open at 9am on Saturday 15th October. Ticket price is £13 and the performance dates are Thursday 17th, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November at 8pm.
Venue: at the Cecil Hepworth Playhouse, Hurst Grove, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, KT12 1AU.
