Woody heads to the outback to get a divorce before Tracey nds out, on 800 Words.
Happy-go-lucky chippie Woody is engaged to fellow Aussie Tracey but before he can walk down the aisle he must get a divorce. The problem is Tracey has no idea he’s already married so Woody, George
What exactly is Woody going to find when he sees his estranged wife Mary?
and Smiler are headed to the outback to get the papers signed before Tracey nds out.
Instead of being honest, Woody (Rick Donald) has invented an imaginary solar panel conference that the men will supposedly attend for their business venture. And despite urging Woody to just tell Tracey (Emma Leonard) what’s going on George (Erik Thomson) has been roped in to the trip at Tracey’s request.
With one outrageous lie on top of another, what could possibly go wrong? There’s every chance that Tracey will nd out what’s going on before Woody’s back. Weld is a small town where gossip spreads very quickly and a simple story snowballs into a major catastrophe.
Tracey would be heartbroken to nd out that Woody already has a wife even if they’ve been estranged for years. The fact is Woody not only lied by omission, he hid a massive life-altering secret from her.
If Woody has failed to tell Tracey that he’s married and not yet divorced what else could he be keeping from her? Does it mean Woody doesn’t trust Tracey enough to reveal his whole past and be himself with her?
It would be a shame for something like this to come between the Aussie lovebirds. The pair were best friends for such a long time and struggled to get out of the friend zone until George gave them a push.
And then Tracey put her career rst and turned Woody down, worried that she would be distracted from her application to be school principal. Her decision pushed Woody into the arms of sexy newcomer Becks (Esther Stephens).
It wasn’t until Tracey saw the pair together that she realised she truly was in love with him. Then Woody’s near-death experience in a jet-ski accident nally brought Woody and Tracey together and they’ve been blissfully happy ever since.
That is, until now. Woody will need Operation Quickie Divorce to go to plan and everyone in Weld to keep quiet if he’s to sort out this mess and not hurt Tracey. But what exactly is Woody going to nd when he sees his estranged wife Mary (Rachael Carpani) for the rst time in more than a decade?
So much could have changed or even remained the same. It seems Mary has been hiding some secrets and the revelation could throw all of Woody’s plans into doubt. What Woody doesn’t know yet is that he has a daughter he never knew about.
If Woody wants the girl to be in his life it means he can’t possibly hide anything from Tracey any more. It would also destroy the image Tracey has had of her future with Woody. She’s likely pictured the two of them having their own kids and starting married life without past baggage weighing them down.
However a daughter changes that and would be a constant reminder that Woody lied and went to extreme efforts to hide the truth rather than be honest. How will Tracey react to this shock news on top of Woody’s deception?
George has a bad feeling about Woody’s plan. And why wouldn’t he? It seems like so much could go wrong. Tracey might nd out before Woody’s had a chance to explain, Mary might not even want a divorce and then there’s the secret daughter news to come to terms with. Will Woody’s mission go off without a hitch?
IN THE DARK Tracey (Emma Leonard) has no idea that Woody is still legally married. Will she find out?
MATES ESCAPE Woody (Rick Donald) has to get his longlost wife Mary to sign divorce papers. So he’s taking his male friends with him to find her. GAME CHANGER Mary (Rachael Carpani) is living in a remote town — with a few secrets set to surprise.
