Footy, beer, work, power

World Premiere

“My best mate, Darren, he’s played AFL his whole life. I wanted to play but Mum wasn’t having it. No footy boys in my house, she said. Well, I forged her signature on the permission slip and that was the beginning of something amazing.”

Come meet the bloke next door. He works hard all day, goes home to his girlfriend at night and plays footy all weekend. He’s up for a promotion, he’s eyeing engagement rings, and he’s played by a Muslim woman.

From guernsey to hijab, power to privilege, we’re talking violence in Australia, good men, and how far is too far. Casey Elder and Tasnim Hossain, the team behind Zak and Reefa’s Bollywood Funeral and Letters to John, have teamed up to deliver this unflinching performance work.

Watch out Speccy McGee, you’ve got a new thing coming.

As part of Summer Nights at Fringe World 2020.
