miss b loves.........Ladies' Day


via

Last Tuesday evening we headed over to Oldham Coliseum Theatre to watch Ladies' Day.....


Ladies' Day, written by Amanda Whittington, is about four factory women from a Hull fish-filleting factory enjoying a glamorous day at the races......Royal Ascot in 2005 when Ascot temporarily moved up to York. 

They swap their plastic aprons and hairnets...

.....for their best dresses and fancy hats....

A lively play with an excellent cast portraying some strong northern characters .... There was plenty of laughter from start to finish and a few surprising revelations along the way! 

Meet the wonderful ladies in this short clip...
                 

Coming soon to the Coliseum.....

* The Oldham Coliseum Theatre dates back to 1885 and was surrounded by a dozen others but the award-winning Coliseum is now the only surviving theatre in the town.

  2. Hi miss b,

    Found you! I love scarves (got a big collection) bags, and shoes, and I've lived in the Middle East, and originally from the Far East so I thought we'll have lots to talk about :)

    Just wanted to say hello and see you again next time :)

  20. It sounds like a wonderful play. I like to watch movies like this. Women's personalities are all different, and it's nice to see them bond with all the differences they have.

    Happy Wednesday.

    Love,
