It’s June 2005, and the Royal Ascot racing carnival has been temporarily displaced to York. Four BFFs from the Hull fish-packing plant decide to spend a day celebrating at the races. What follows is a comedy of drinking, gambling and a lot of secret sharing.

WYONG Drama Group will present the play “Ladies Day” by Amanda Whittington in April at the Red Tree Theatre, Tuggerah. Following on in the vein of their sell-out seasons of Calendar Girls and Steel Magnolias in previous years, this play shows how ordinary women come together to support each other, share dreams and confess deep dark secrets.


Directed by popular WDG actor Cathy De Vries in her directorial debut, Ladies Day is an amateur production performed by arrangement with Origin Theatrical on behalf of Nick Hern Books. It is the second play of an exciting calendar of events for the Company’s 71st year of productions.


The season runs from 21 to 29 April, with 8 performances. Opening night is a Gala event with wine and nibbles. Bookings are open now. Check here for details.


Don’t miss this warm-hearted mix of earthy working class humour, unexpected twists and some reflective moments. As described by the Yorkshire Post – “With its Yorkshire heart and soul it has all the warmth of a Calendar Girls or a Full Monty”.
