Sad About The Cows

Heather Ralph & Caspa Arts Presents 


by Michelle Payne 


21st - 25th May 

18:15 (13:00 matinee)





A story of Ariana Grande, Victoria’s Secret models & what happens if you succumb to the temptation of a Milky Bar Button.

“It’s hard for girls isn’t it? - What with the media & becoming a woman…”

Meet Rachel, a girl obsessed with consuming, calorie-counting and her career, as she navigates her way through modern life to becoming a mature, grown-up woman.

Sad About the Cows transfers to the Tristan Bates following it’s success as part of the John Thaw Initiative Working Class Season with Actor Awareness earlier this year.
