Dapto Chaser

Date: 
Wed 6 Sep - Sun 10 Sep
 
For the Sinclair family, the cut-throat world of greyhound racing is a religion. 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 warts-and-all Australian dramatic comedy about a family on the edge. It is a play that gets its hands dirty with the adrenaline, sweat and guts of the controversial 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.
 
"All in all, The Dapto Chaser is funny, rude, illuminating and a fine play that’s meaningful and extremely entertaining. Not to be missed."
