Synopsis:
Work, love and life are one hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. Their luck changes when they decide to go 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.

Programme Notes:
Whilst the weather during the last couple of months has been quite dreadful we have been rehearsing this outrageous comedy which is set during the year that "Royal Ascot" was moved to a very sunny York Racecourse to enable major renovations to take place at it's traditional Ascot home. The story of our four fish packers on their special day at the Royal Races defies belief and we hope our production in this Diamond Jubilee Year brings another smile on your face and that the fun that we have had in rehearsing rubs off on you. My thanks to the cast and all members of the company who have made this challenging, fast moving production such a joy to create. So place your bets, take your seat, get ready for the riders and runners - but most of all ENJOY. Mike Morris, Director.
