A new contemporary comedy-drama directed by Caroline Dunphy that celebrates the grit and daring of Australian women.

Intrepid performers Roxanne McDonald and Barbara Lowing navigate risky terrain, facing their own mortality as they journey through the heart line of their lives and into the hilarious misadventures of the women who made them who they are today. 

Rovers comes from the award-winning Belloo Creative team and is a bold, original work, celebrating the grit and daring of women trailblazers. 

Woven from true stories and wild machinations, this rigorous and poetic work will resonate with audiences of all ages as the two actors revel in the rough and tumble of multiple stories and characters. 

This is a joyous and heartfelt celebration of Australian women who’ve dared to follow their dreams.
