The Times

To complement My Judy Garland Life in the main house, Fifth Word Theatre return to the Playhouse after their 2012 hit show Bones to stage another of Amanda Whittington’s plays in the Neville Studio.

“Gary says it’s not about glamour no more. Men want girls in their own home, them who look like your neighbour or your best mate’s wife. Them who you could have in real life.Amateur girls.”

Julie is a likeable auxiliary nurse, working long hours for a low wage in a Nottingham hospital. Julie longs for some real excitement and a bit of spare cash. When her new boyfriend buys a camcorder, Julie sees a lucrative new career on the horizon. She’s drawn into the world of the amateur girls. Yet Julie’s new life can’t stay secret for long. What starts as a bit of fun becomes anything but.

Based on real-life stories, Amateur Girl is a hard-hitting, poignant yet wryly amusing play about the reality behind the fantasy business.

Starring ex-Eastender Lucy Speed

PLEASE NOTE Amateur Girl will start promptly at 8pm and due to the nature of the performance no latecomers can be admitted.
