The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race

A funny, honest and heart-warming story featuring five fabulous women

An Ensemble Theatre Production
Written by Melanie Tait
Directed by Priscilla Jackman

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 to men, and a measly $200 to 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.

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

Suitable for ages 14+
