Rovers is a delightful and modern comedy-drama that has audiences laughing, crying and celebrating the imagination and heart of Australia’s trailblazing women. Woven from true stories and wild machinations, this is a fast-paced & poetic night at the theatre
that everyone will love.

If you’ve ever faced a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, had to keep a family secret or said yes to a crazy dare in a bar, then this funny, heart-warming and crackling ode to Australia, and the daring women she breeds, will be just your cup of tea.

Intrepid performers Roxanne McDonald and Barbara Lowing get behind the wheel and navigate audiences into risky terrain, journeying through the heart-lines of their lives and into the hilarious, fun-loving misadventures of the women who made them who
they are today.

Join us for an entertaining and heartfelt adventure with two of Australia’s finest actors.

Rovers was filmed live in Queensland at Redland Performing Arts Centre in July 2021.
