By David Williamson
Brent Lyall (Leigh Scully) is a freakish young sporting talent. At the age of twenty three he is already captain of one of the most powerful football clubs in the land. Managed by the legendary Rohan Swift, Brent’s blossoming career, and the millions that come with it, seem assured. But Brent has an explosive secret which is on the verge of becoming public. So Rohan hires the brilliant psychologist Jessica (Rachel Gordon) to find out what Brent is trying to hide … but soon wishes he hadn’t.
David Williamson’s brand new play is an uproariously funny comedy about football, identity and slingbacks. It’s about gender and sexual politics, but in the end it’s also about who we are, who we are perceived to be and what we really want people to think of us.
“It’s almost an echo of The Club, going back to that territory that David’s very, very good at and knows very well. It’s a very funny, very poetic, beautiful comedy.”
Mark Kilmurry, Director
