It's 1953 and all the girls in Nottingham want to work at John Player's, the best employer in town. Whilst Cyn dreams of being a beauty queen and Vee adjusts to married life, widowed Glad shares a secret with her young supervisor Bill. When the youthful Mae comes to work at Player's, however, the lives and secrets of all the women change forever.
It is the recollection of good times now distant - comradeship, simple pleasures, support for those in trouble - which makes this a joyous evening as well as a very funny one – The Stage.
