Sudbury Dramatic Society is looking forward to its first production of 2017 – Ladies’ Day by Amanda Whittington, which is on at The Quay Theatre from March 7 to 11, at 7.45pm.

When Hull fish factory worker Linda finds tickets for Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day, four Yorkshire women grab the opportunity to take the day off work, dress up to the nines, and head there for a drink, a flirt and a flutter. But their day at the races doesn’t go quite as planned…!

Whilst quaffing champers and eating cheese and pickle sandwiches, the foursome have a right royal time backing horses all named after Tony Christie song titles.

As the day proceeds the friends slowly start to discover more about each other, their future and their pasts; as one by one their selections are winning - are the girls about to win big? Come along and see this comedy drama to find out the answer!

Director Mark Scanlon, responsible for last year’s successful Outside Edge and still recovering from his recent role as a pantomime pirate, said: “Think Calendar Girls or Dinner Ladies and you will be in the right area for Ladies’ Day.

“This play was originally developed by the highly respected Hull Truck Theatre Company, so if you like what they have done in the past, you will love this!”

Tickets are available now from The Quay Theatre Box Office on 01787 374745 or online at www.quaysudbury.org.uk.
