There’s not much to do on the allotment in the depths of February, so why not check out this new show, running at York Theatre Royal for one evening only on 25th February, 2023. It’s billed as an hilarious and moving comedy-drama about allotmenteering and the great outdoors and is based on interviews with local plot holders. Are you one of them? Do let us know if you’ve contributed!
Here’s what the theatre have to say about Ladies That Dig:
A hilarious and moving comedy-drama from the team that brought you Ladies That Bus.
Ladies That Dig is about the great outdoors and the people who enjoy it. Budding love, blossoming middle-age, exploring our roots, and unearthing buried treasures, lead us to discover what it means to ‘grow’…
Collected from real local interviews from Allotmenteers, Metal Detectorists, Archaeologists, Grave-diggers, Forensic Anthropologists and people who just love gardening, Ladies That Dig is a fertile blend of live music, comedy, and true tales from women who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty.York Theatre Royal

About the show
The wild and wonderful world of weather
Through the chronicles of history, people have gazed up and marvelled at the mysteries of the weather. Generations have tried to master the elements, and understand the magic of the skies.
Hayley’s sunny, beloved dad was the nation’s favourite weatherman. He could make a typhoon sound like a tickle. Hayley is now following in his footsteps, to join the ranks of the forecasting fraternity. Or at least, local shoestring teatime telly.
When the pressure drops and dark clouds gather, Hayley is melting faster than a lonely snowflake. She’s seen the future’s forecast, but will anyone listen?
Bring your anorak and your factor 50. Well, you never know.
No tickets required, a ‘pay what you feel’ collection will be taken after the show.
Scarcroft Allotments can be found on Scarcroft Road, YO23 1PF, with the entrance just opposite the Croquet club and the park. The performance will take place outside, so bring a chair or blanket and why not bring a picnic too.
