SYNOPSIS

Work, love and life are one hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda.  Their luck changes when Linda finds tickets to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot in York. Out go the hairnets and overalls as the girls do themselves up and head for the races.  As the day unfolds, the champagne flows, secrets spill out and their horses keep winning. By the last race, the girls are on course for a life-changing win.

CHAIR’S PRODUCTION NOTES

Hello and welcome to ‘Ladies’ Day’ on behalf of myself and all of The Monday Players. The temporary relocation of Royal Ascot to York in 2005 was a memorable event. Local residents who had to struggle with the chaotic traffic conditions it caused will certainly never forget it, nor will the taxi drivers who just for once had a good excuse to avoid the city centre and take their unsuspecting passengers on an expensive detour! 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... We have been working hard on Sunday and Monday evenings over the past few months to provide our local community with a little live theatre. Barbara Miller returns as director for this show. Her last directorial outing was in 2010 (Taking Steps) and she has been working tirelessly alongside Jill Pearson (Assistant Director) and her team to produce something we are very proud of, something that you, our audience, will hopefully enjoy. For this production proceeds from the raffle will include a donation to the Escrick Village Hall Ceiling Fund. Thank you once again for your continued support, attendance, laughter and applause – and we hope you will join us again in November as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Monday Players by revisiting our first ever production: Season’s Greetings by Alan Ayckbourn.I would like to also take this opportunity to thank our sponsors – your support is greatly appreciated as always.
