DRAMA queens at Jericho House are drawing on their own experiences to stage a funny but hard-hitting play.

The women, who are in recovery from drug addiction, are based in a rehab house in Shankland Road.

The use drama as part of their journey to get back on track and their latest play is called 'It Wisnae Me It Was Yous' and is being held at St John's Church hall in Shore Street in Port Glasgow on Friday June 28.

Senior project worker Margaret Diamond is hoping for a packed hall.

She said: "The lassies have worked so hard and it's good for their confidence and self worth.

"It would be nice if we get a good turnout to watch the play."

Jericho resident-turned-volunteer Stacey Buckley says she has been able to turn her life around thanks to the award-winning charity.

She said: "I didn't like the drama at first but I really enjoy it now.

"It's given me confidence.

"This is my fifth or sixth play."

Stacey, 33, was very poorly physically and mentally when she first came to Jericho.

She said: "When I first came in I was 'shut down', I couldn't even speak or look anyone in the eye.

"The plays have really helped to build up my confidence and self-esteem."

Stacey is now a volunteer helping other women to rebuild their lives.

She said: "It gives me structure and routine.

"I've come back to help the other lassies because they know if I can do it they can do it."

Doors for the play will open at 6.30pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £6 and they will be available on the door.
