Reserved Seating Only

Critically acclaimed real-life couple David Ross Paterson (Frost/Nixon, Benjamin Button, Chopper) and Cecelia Specht (Criminal Minds, Castle, Neighbours) battle it out in a Grand Final Week comedy for lovers and haters of Football alike.

Reserve your Seats to experience this hilarious and heart-warming comedy about life, love and new beginnings - spinning a contemporary angle on traditional gender roles and their relationship to sport.

A football ‘conscientious objector’ (Celia Specht) has claimed her footy-fanatic ex-husband’s Grand Final tickets in a messy divorce. Now, watching the game for the first time she is blissfully immune to its attractions- and instantly locks horns with her ex-husband’s loud and burly footy-mate (David Ross Paterson) who becomes her reluctant companion over four eventful quarters. They make a seriously mismatched couple with little to offer each other. Or do they?

A terrific little play... very funny and also quite moving.” 774 ARTS SUNDAY

FLAK

Michael Veitch presents tales of heroism, strength and humanity from WWII Airmen

Returning for a special encore performance after the popular 2013 premiere, FLAK is a powerful, profound and moving piece of theatre that presents tales heroism that all Australian’s should hear.

Based on his two best-selling books, Flak and Fly, well-known writer and performer Michael Veitch presents Flak - True stories from the men who flew in World War Two. In this powerful one-man show Michael takes on the roles of former airmen, recounting their extraordinary, true and largely untold stories of combat in the air war of 1939-45.

‘Michael Veitch’s Flak is a marvellous monodrama told with the skill of someone who combines the questing of a journalist, the rigour of a historian and the compassion of a very fine actor.' Dr Mark Williams, Adjunct Professor, School of Art, RMIT University
