‘Ladies’ Day’ Amanda Whittingtons exuberent comedy

Elizabeth Wilson, director Ladies’ Day, said: “There’s something really special about Saughtonhall Drama Group – we have a really strong team spirit, which I think shines through in our performances.”

“The cast is really excited about performing Amanda Whittington’s play, which has a very funny script. The play features four women – Pearl, Jan, Linda and Shelley – who decide to go to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot, even though they don’t have tickets for the races. They’re on a quest to find love, happiness and Tony Christie.”

Elizabeth added: “I received permission from Amanda Whittington, the play’s creator, to adapt the script so that the four characters work in a fish factory in Musselburgh, which adds a nice local dimension to the story. I was really surprised to find out that the play has never been presented at the Fringe before and so we’re thrilled to give the debut performance.”
