Mansfield Musical and Dramatic Society (MMuDS) presents the play ‘Kid Stakes’.
‘Kid Stakes’ is the first of Ray Lawler’s trilogy which culminates in Summer of the Seventeenth Doll. A joyful portrait of the summer of the first doll, in which a chance encounter brings Olive and Emma, Roo and Barney, into the shabby Carlton terrace to begin a seventeen-year journey of seasonal love and argument. After a chance encounter at the aquarium, and some fancy manoeuvring by the two cane cutters Roo and Barney, the 2 couples begin their 17 year journey which eventually ends with the final instalment, Ray Lawler’s Classic Australian play Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, Kid Stakes was written in the 1970’s a decade and a half after the ‘Doll’ and in it we explore the characters, their lives and choices made in their youth which sets them on their journey, this is the summer of the first doll.
