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 for the men, and a measly $200 for the 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.
Written by Melanie Tait, The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race is a story about upsetting the potato cart and standing up for your principles. Sharon Millerchip, Valerie Bader, Merridy Eastman, Amber McMahon and Sapidah Kian feature. Priscilla Jackman directs.
