Event Information

Steve is the typical Aussie bloke, self-assured, social and sports-mad. Recently retired from a high-flying career, he’s passed the family business over to his son Jimmy – a chip off the old block. But his eldest son Luke, an engineer with more of an interest in algebra than AFL, has never quite seen eye-to-eye with his Dad and they haven’t spoken in eight years.

When Steve suddenly falls ill, time is running out to repair their broken relationship – and Luke and Jimmy will have to go to extreme lengths to fulfil their father’s final wishes.

Sparkling with razor sharp wit and humour, ‘Crunch Time’ tackles pertinent social issues head-on in this story of family and duty. Directed by Mark Kilmurry with a cast including John Wood (Blue Heelers) and Guy Edmonds (Betrayal), don’t miss Australian theatre heavyweight David Williamson’s final play before retirement.

“I always return to writing about families because they shape us and give rise to our most intense emotions, be they tears of joy or tears of rage. ‘Crunch Time’ is about a family at crisis point, with no easy way out.

It’s often blackly funny but hopefully doesn’t dodge life’s biggest and most pressing question – ‘What’s it all about?’ ” – Director David Williamson
