Synopsis:
After hitting the jackpot at Ladies Day in York, the fish-filleting foursome are celebrating in style with the trip of a lifetime to Australia. As they travel from Hull to the Gold Coast, Uluru and the bright lights of Sydney, they embark on a journey of self-discovery. While Shelley dreams of luxury and glamour, her mates set their sights on exploring the outback. As Shelley sees there's more to Oz than sun-kissed beaches, Pearl finds herself with a mountain to climb.

Programme Notes:
Just 12 months ago we left the four fish packers in a state of shock when they won the Jackpot at Royal Ascot - now they are planning their journey to Australia to celebrate in style but nothing ever goes to plan with them. This is a marvellous follow up to the original play involving even more outrageous characters from cabin staff on a British Airways jet, a couple of beach bums, an Australian Traveller, two drag queens at the Mardi Gras as well as Joe - the fella who had set off much earlier to Australia to arrange a wonderful welcome - so what could possibly go wrong??? Hope you enjoy our Summer 2013 production . Mike Morris, Director.
