Caulfield Cup Capers 1925

Melodrama Returns to the Gold Rush Colony

Event Date: 
24 Sep 2016 - 2 Oct 2016

Melbourne socialite, Felicity Fitzharding-Jones, is throwing a Caulfield Cup luncheon for her friends and staff at her rural retreat at Pakenham, 35 miles from the city centre.

It is the 25th October 1925. The running of the Caulfield Cup will be broadcast for the first time in Australia by radio station 3UZ. Listening to the broadcast is to be the highlight of the afternoon's entertainment that Felicity has planned.

While Felicity awaits the arrival of some special guests various gate-crashers turn up with unexpected consequences.

In the best melodramatic tradition
one puzzle leads to another and the audience (Felicity's
friends and staff) are encouraged to join in the fun while enjoying
their three course luncheon.
