From award winning actor and writer Brendan Cowell (The Slap, Love My Way) comes a visceral examination of sex, power and footy. The Sublime is fresh new writing that turns sports page headlines into breakneck drama, where characters battle it out to tell their side of the story.
What happens on the footy trip doesn’t always stay on the footy trip. And when things go wrong in Thailand, only three people know the whole story. There’s Liam, an NRL workhorse who’s devoted to his code and his teammates; his older brother Dean, a top pick for the Brownlow, who tries desperately to clean up Liam’s mess; and Amber, a promising young athlete who rests uneasily on the edge of complicity and victimhood.
Cutting through the media-managed clichés of professional football, The Sublime plots an emotionally charged trajectory to expose human faults that go way beyond the sporting field. For this fiery world premiere production, Associate Artistic Director Sam Strong combines forces with actors Josh McConville, Ben O’Toole and Anna Samson.
