Chelmsford Theatre Workshop are taking you on an exciting trip to the other side of the world, without leaving Essex…. From our NODA drama award winning team of Ladies’ Day comes the sequel Ladies Down Under.
Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda, the four fish packers from Hull, have decided to use the money they won at the races to treat themselves to a luxury holiday in Australia! However, just like on their trip to Royal Ascot, things don’t go quite to plan.
Amanda Whittington’s Ladies Down Under is a sequel to her hit play, Ladies’ Day and follows the fortunes of Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda as they head to Australia.
Having won an absolute fortune at the races last time round, the girls from Hull head off to Australia on the trip of a lifetime. But it’s not all fun Down Under. Jan is terrified that boyfriend, Joe (who left England for a new life at the beginning of Ladies’ Day) may have lost interest in her while he’s been abroad.
Linda is struggling with the burden her new fortune has brought her. Shelley has frittered away her share on designer clothes and partying, but soon discovers she has very little to show for it.
Meanwhile, Pearl is going through a life-changing event herself.
The women each discover something about themselves as their bond deepens and they discover that money can’t buy you love, or happiness.
