TRACTOR Girls, the hit play that charts the obsessions of two female Town fans with their beloved club, tonight faces a home crowd in its nationwide tour.

But what will the real Tractor Boys make of it?

The play, which follows Ipswich Town's successful – though, at the time of writing, fictitious - journey in to Russia in the UEFA Cup, finally plays in front of real Ipswich fans at the town's New Wolsey Theatre tonight.

It will be the ultimate challenge for the cast to face home truths as the play follows the fortunes of Caz and Mo, two naïve Suffolk girls.

They leave their lives working in a chicken factory for the darkest depths of Russia in their pursuit of the beautiful game.

Playwright David Holman who wrote the play said they are looking forward to playing here, although he admitted they are a little nervous.

"This is the ultimate challenge for us. It is really important what the Ipswich audience think of it," he said.

The play is full of comedy, football and the odd adventure with the Russian mafia.

It has had excellent reviews so far so if you would like to see just what others think about our fine football club then there is still time to get tickets.
