Description:
A new comedy about fame, falsehood and Bob Hawke's hair by Matt Hawkins

Based on real events, Bordertown is the story of Patricia Barnes,
country hairdresser who created Bob Hawke’s ‘silver bodgie’
hair style. 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 and all hell
breaks loose in a small town obsessed with fame.

“…a heart-felt play… a beautiful story, well executed by cast and crew, which will leave you with a smile and a tear.”
Nicola Woolford…Glam Adelaide

“Deftly played, and directed by the writer with a light touch, Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy is a delight...”
Peter Burdon. The Advertiser

“Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy” is blowing the cobwebs away from the dark and dusty corners of Adelaide theatre and bringing us delightfully into the modern day.”
Maggie Wood… Adelaide Theatre Guide

“New theatrical works by local writers are always a welcome commodity… especially when a play as fine as ‘The Middle Way’ makes it to the stage…it is a strong and highly satisfying work.”
Anthony Vawser…Adelaide Theatre Guide

“This team is very experienced…The Middle Way is as a delightful evening at Holden Street Theatres that I thoroughly recommend.”
Pamela Watts…Broadway World.
