Think Calendar Girls or Dinner Ladies and you are in the right area! Ladies' Day was developed under the wing of the respected Hull Truck Theatre Company, so if you like their work you will love this!
Work, love and life are one hard slog for Yorkshire lassies and fish factory workers, Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda.
This all changes for at least one day when the women decide to try and get in to Ladies Day at Royal Ascot on the occasion of it's move 'oop North' for one year whilst Royal Ascot is being redeveloped.
Work overalls and hairnets are replaced by posh frocks and hats as the intrepid foursome manage to 'acquire' tickets and set themselves fair for a drink, a flirt and a flutter...but things don't turn out quite as they expect.
