Time is running out to snap up your tickets for The New Barrhead Players’ latest production.

The amateur dramatics group will perform comedy Ladies’ Day, written by dramatist Amanda Whittington, from Friday, June 9 to Sunday, June 11 from 7.30pm at Clarkston Hall.

Their latest production promises to be a “dazzling event” which will leave audiences “smiling from ear to ear” with the talented cast’s “hilarious and heartwarming performances.”

It follows the tale of fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelly and Linda, for whom life is “one long hard slog.”

Their fortunes, however, are set to change when they head to Ladies' Day at the races for an unforgettable trip out which sees “factory hairnets make way for fascinators”, “secrets spilled with the champagne” and “friendships tested to the limit.”

Tempers fray but if their luck and nerve holds they could hit the jackpot.

Alma Mearns, who is producing, directing and performing in the play, said: “Gather your friends, plan your outfits and let’s have an unforgettable night together filled with laughter, friendship and amazing performances. We can’t wait to see you there."

The group hopes the production will emulate the resounding success of their debut play Gypsy: A Comedy Play in Two Acts, which ran for three sold-out nights at Barrhead’s Bourock Parish Church in October.

The cast has been rehearsing long and hard at the Arthurlie Inns, in Barrhead, for Ladies' Day after owner Peter Mulholland allowed the group to use the premises’ downstairs bar for free.

They had previously been using Bourock Parish Church for rehearsals in the run-up to their first play before, prior to the show, a row broke out between the church and the group over the play’s content.

A compromise was reached to allow the performances to go ahead but, after the curtain went down, the group was told it could no longer use the church, which had been their base since February 2022.

Fortunately, Peter stepped in to save the day.

“Peter has been more than kind to us because we can rehearse downstairs,” added Alma. “He's not charging us a thing.

“We are eternally grateful and all of the staff are so kind to us.

“I have been living and breathing (this play) and we are hoping it’s a success.

“We want the support, we want to sell tickets and we want to play some full houses.”
