A play set in a 1950s tobacco factory, where women bond, fall out and compete for the attention and favours of the factory foreman, while working on the production line.

In 1950's Nottingham, John Player's girls have the best jobs, the best wage and the best hairdos in town. And now, there's a new face on the Navy Cut machine as 15-year-old Mae comes fresh from the country for her first job at the tobacco factory.

Mae lodges with Aunt Glad who sits alongside her on the production line but keeps her assignations with the young factory foreman to herself. Led by workmates Cyn and Vee, Mae takes her first steps into the world of the Player's Angels: where a young girl can lose her halo and find her wings.

Amanda Whittington's play Player's Angels was commissioned by New Perspectives and first staged at the Old Library, Mansfield, in 1999. It was later rewritten as The Wills’s Girls for Show of Strength Theatre Company, and performed at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol, in 2002-2003.

This play is available only in digital form. A PDF version of the script can be purchased above for the purposes of printing off a cast set of scripts. If you're considering the play for performance and would like a non-printable digital version of the script to read on screen, free of charge, please email the Performing Rights Manager.
