Dinnerladies serves up laughs at Stables


Dinnerladies serves up the tale of five regular women who work in a factory canteen just outside Manchester.

They put on their overalls, they fanny about with tins of beans and salad sandwiches, they wash up, they take off their overalls and then go home.

But within their daily routine they bicker, fall out, run into the toilet crying, plan romances, weigh themselves, fantasise and try to read the telly pages without their glasses.

An eclectic mix of wonderfully funny characters pass through the kitchen, adding flavour to their otherwise mundane working day.

Paula Croft, one of the directors of the show, said: “By kind permission of Victoria Wood we are proud to bring this hilarious BBC comedy to the Stables Theatre.

“So come along and see some of your favourite characters brought to life once again in this fabulous stage adaptation, featuring our much loved and talented Stables actors.

“Tickets have already sold extremely well so due to popular demand we have added in an extra matinee performance on Saturday, April 18 at 3pm.

“We will also be donating a percentage of the profits to the ‘let’s face it’ charity which Miss Wood is a patron of.”

The production of Dinnerladies at the Stables Theatre is directed by Paula and Marcus Croft.
