Ladies Down Under'by Amanda Whittington, directed by Frank Kaye

Details

Commissioned by the Hull Truck Theatre, in this funny and heart-warming sequel to Amanda Whittington's popular ‘Ladies Day’ we follow the fortunes of four fish packers from Hull who won big on the races and are now following the dream by holidaying 'Down Under'. In the land of Oz these four fearless ladies find there's more to life than money and fish. Indeed, as Pearl discovers, 'life is what happens when you are busy making other plans' The Reviews Hub critic reported that “The writing is brilliantly funny, from the pop culture references and offhand observations, to the frequent off-key renditions of Waltzing Matilda. However, something unexpected happens on arrival in Oz as the pace becomes less frenetic, the humour less coarse and the characterisation deepens.’ Round the campfire the outback is revealed as less Crocodile Dundee and more as a place of mystic spirituality … and terrifying spiders. Our girls meet a drunken Pom on a beach, a poseur of a surfer and a rugged bush hero, falling in love and sorting out their lives along the way, set against a background of Kylie and the Beach Boys
