'HERE'S TO A WOMAN WHO CONQUERED THE MURKY WORLD OF WESTMINSTER WITH NOTHING BUT WIT AND GUMPTION... AND ENOUGH HAIRSPRAY TO TURN A TSUNAMI INTO A KISS CURL.'

As the first female speaker of the House of Commons, Betty Boothroyd is a Dewsbury girl to celebrate, and the six ladies (plus Calvin) of The Dewsbury Players are going to do just that... through the medium of musical theatre! Their high-kicks may be wobbly, their acting ‘enthusiastic’ and the props left over from a production of MISS SAIGON; but, tonight, the Village Hall is their theatre of dreams! Emboldened by their heroine's indefatigable tenacity, this amateur group prove themselves to be extraordinary women on and off stage.

Maxine Peake (FUNNY COW & ANNE) and Seiriol Davies (HOW TO WIN AGAINST HISTORY) write and star in this brand-new production, directed by former Royal Exchange Theatre Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom. At a time when everything seems so polarised, BETTY is a heart-warming celebration of the human spirit and the unexpected rewards that can come from thinking outside of the dispatch box.
