Nottingham Playhouse & Fifth Word presents Amanda Whittington’s play Amateur Girl at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre.

It can be seen there on Friday and Saturday (March 7-8) and stars former EastEnders actress Lucy Speed.

Inspired by real-life stories, Amateur Girl is a hard-hitting, poignant and wryly amusing play about the reality behind the fantasy business and what some people have to do to subsidise a life during the current ‘cost of living crisis’.

Amateur Girl began as a 15-minute play for BBC Radio 4 and was commissioned into a full-length play by Hull Truck Theatre in 2009.

Tickets for the one-woman show are available from the Derby LIVE box office on 01332 255800.

Please note the play has adult themes and is recommended for ages 16 and ove
