Considered one of the Popular Theatre Troupe's most accessible shows, The Millionaire's Handicap was the result of Albert Hunt's last visit as a consultant and director for the company.
'Based on a booklet published by Action for World Development about the activities of the Comalco Bauxite Mining Company in North Queensland, where the aboriginal people had been removed at gunpoint from their tribal lands. There was also evidence of transfer price fixing in Hong Kong to deny Australia a share of the profits resulting from the mining, The Millionaires Handicap used training and racing horses as a metaphor for the treatment of different "races" of people by big business.'
1976: First staged in August, The Millionaire's handicap played Sydney, Melbourne (Pram Factory) during the year.
