Following a sellout season in Sydney, a new Australian theatre classic comes to town.
Introducing the Sinclair family, for whom the cut-throat world of greyhound racing is
a religion. And their beloved dog Boy Named Sue is more than a greyhound; he’s their heart and soul on four legs. With the crucial Winnebago Classic on the horizon, Cess Sinclair has one shot at reversing his family’s fortunes for good. Against all the odds, he’s betting on a miracle.
The Dapto Chaser is a warts-and-all Australian comedy that gets its hands dirty with the adrenaline and sweat of the dog racing sub-culture. The Sinclairs are trapped in the pressure cooker of gambling addiction and when things don’t go to plan, they are forced to gamble the most precious commodity of all – their relationships to each other.
Warning: This production contains dogs, bitches, mongrels, drugs, cheating, lying – and masses of family dysfunction.
