Against all the odds, he’s betting on a miracle
The Dapto Chaser is warts-and-all Australian comedy that gets its hands dirty with the adrenaline, sweat and guts of the dog racing sub-culture. The Sinclairs are a family trapped in the pressure cooker of gambling addiction and when things don’t go to plan, they are forced to gamble the most important commodity of all – their relationship to each other.
Playwright Mary Rachel Brown wrote The Dapto Chaser perched in the bleachers track-side, while director Glynn Nicholas will be going on an all-schnitzel diet to get it over the line.
Warning: This production contains dogs, bitches, mongrels, drugs, cheating, lying, winning, losing and masses of family dysfunction.
The Dapto Chaser was commissioned and originally produced by Merrigong Theatre Company.
