Brent Lyall at 24yo is a dual Brownlow medallist and sports god AFL star with a secret which could not only ruin his career but put at risk lucrative advertising endorsement deals for the prestigious footy club. When Lyall’s hyperactive hysterical Manager finds out what Brent’s secret is, he goes into damage control with hilarious results.
Add a sleazy sports journo hell bent on digging up the dirt on Brent and damaging the famous club’s image, a manufactured ex hooker girlfriend and a performance coach doing her utmost to help the conflicted star and you have David Williamson’s high energy witty play about football as business entertainment. This fast moving play portrays hilarious and poignant layered characters and at the same time is thought provoking and timely entertainment.
