The Appleton Ladies' Potato Race

01 Jun - Capitol Theatre

Presented by Quest Tamworth

An Ensemble Theatre Production
BY MELANIE TAIT

A funny, honest and heart-warming story

Appleton is a small country town being forced into the present with a recent influx of wealthy city slickers, treechangers and refugees. Simmering tensions come to a head when new GP Penny Anderson discovers that the famous Appleton Potato Race awards $1000 prize money for the men, and a measly $200 for the women. When Penny decides to take steps to restore gender parity and coax Appleton into the 21st century, little could she have anticipated the spiralling, hilarious culture war that would follow.

* * * * Sparkling new comedy" - Sydney Morning Herald

Inspired by real life events, The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race is a funny, honest and heart- warming story about upsetting the potato cart and standing up for your principles.

 

The much loved Ensemble Theatre returns with another stellar comedy that was highly acclaimed and had a sell-out season when first presented.
