The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race

Home > Sydney > Performing Arts | Shows | Theatre

ABC Broadcaster, Author and Playwright Melanie Tait's funny, honest and heart-warming play, The Appleton Ladies' Potato Race, is at Riverside Theatre 5th- 8th May and Glen Street Theatre 13th -16th May.

Inspired by true events, Appleton is a quintessential small Aussie country town. Like most small town residents, there are those that embrace change and those that don't. Lifelong residents Barb and Bev are polar opposites - Barb rallies for change, with Bev not a fan of the tree-changers and their city ways.

This production is timely insight into gender equality, gender pay gap and women's movement. It's a comedy about our relationship with both history and change, packing a punch by showing rural Australia through the eyes of five female leads fighting rejection and acceptance all whilst daring to ask whether the world can be something more.
