Bordertown

South Australian Playwrights Theatre

Bordertown
Based on real events, Bordertown is the story of Patricia Barnes, a country hairdresser who created Bob Hawke’s ‘silver bodgie’ hairstyle. Faced with her own waning notoriety, she compels her daughter, Felicity, to head to Hollywood and become a star. After scoring a job on a major production, Felicity starts dating B-List actor and former stand-up comedian, Emilio Sanchez, much to the delight of her mother and a bunch of Australian gossip mags. After a mere two weeks, however, the relationship falls apart all hell breaks loose in a small town obsessed with fame.
