Ladies' Day

By Amanda Whittington

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

An exuberant comedy about four likely lasses from the Hull fish docks on a day trip to the races, from the author of Be My Baby.

Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot the year it relocated to York.

Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as the four ditch work, do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter. If their luck holds, they could hit the jackpot - and more besides...

Amanda Whittington's play Ladies’ Day premiered at Hull Truck Theatre in 2005 and has been revived many times since, including at the Royal Court in Liverpool and the Oldham Coliseum.

Also available: Ladies Down Under, the sequel to Ladies' Day
