World Premiere

From award-winning actor and writer Brendan Cowell comes a brilliantly perceptive take on everything true Australians hold dear: mateship, family, footy and sex scandals.

First there’s Dean, a former NRL star who’s switched codes and cities. Then there’s his brother Liam, the footy workhorse who tries to clean up Dean’s mess but mostly just makes things worse. And finally, there’s Amber, the teenage athlete who rests uneasily on the edge of complicity and victimhood. The team footy trip to Thailand is where things start to get ugly, but when the brothers meet on game day it’s a showdown Melbourne will never forget.

The Sublime cuts through the media-managed world of professional football to expose human foibles that exist way beyond the sporting field. Director Sam Strong combines forces with actor Josh McConville to create a fiery production for lovers of any code, and for those who’ve never set foot inside a stadium.
