The Appleton Ladies Potato Race
24 May @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$19 – $22
A play by Melanie Tait
Directed by: Selena Carr
In the tidy town of Appleton, things are just so.
Men are men, women are women, and vegetables are not cake and that’s the way it’s always been. That is, until prodigal daughter Penny returns from the big smoke to set up shop as the local GP.
Penny was always something of an outsider. While she was off getting educated and travelling the world, the good folk of Appleton kept about their business, living hard and working harder, and trying not to stuff things up too much before each year’s great event, the famous Appleton Potato Race.
Penny never much cared about the potato race, but when she discovers that the men’s prize is five times more than the women’s, she suddenly does care. A lot. And she’s determined to do something about it.
