INSPIRED by Australia’s fascination with celebrating the Melbourne Cup as well as the complexities of female relationships, Cairns playwright Angela Murphy’s most recent work What Are The Odds? was a huge success.
The comedy explores two groups of women doing Melbourne cup lunch, and much more. Laughs, pathos and truths are exposed. As part of her research, Angela found it necessary to immerse herself in character, pop on a hat and attend several such events over the years.
The play ran for a two week season at JUTE Theatre, Cairns in April 2011 performing to full houses and creating a box office record for the theatre company.
