The Appleton Ladies' Potato Race
State Theatre Company South Australia presents
The Appleton Ladies' Potato Race

4 Jun 2021 to 19 Jun 2021

 

Appleton is the quintessential small Australian country town. There are those in the town who embrace change, like long-time resident Barb. And there are those, like Barb’s friend Bev, who aren’t fans of the tree-changers and their city ways.

Penny returns to her childhood home just in time for the Appleton Show and its famous potato race, where the winning man’s prize is $1,000 and the winning woman’s prize is… $200? Not if Penny has anything to do with it. The determined doctor swings into action to right this wrong; she’s going to smash through the glass ceiling, one potato sack at a time.

Inspired by true events, Melanie Tait’s affectionate Australian comedy receives its South Australian premiere following triumphant seasons around the country. The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race is an effervescent, hilarious and big-hearted tale about women taking action and showing the world there’s more than one way to win a race.
