The Dapto Chaser

South Townsville, Townsville Area

Australian National Theatre Live
Presents a film of a live theatrical performance

For the Sinclair family, 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 a crucial race, the 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 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.
