This September, JPR Productions is proudly presenting a limited four-show run of the iconic masterpiece The Club at The Metro Arts, Brisbane. Tickets are now on sale and selling fast!

Written by David Williamson, one of Australia's best-known dramatists and playwrights, The Club offers a dramatic yet side-splittingly humorous look at the dawn of the professional sports era in Australian Rules football.

The cast includes Vyvyan Black, John Moorhead, Brent Dunner, Richard Lund, Andrew Lowe and Francis McMahon

Get ready to be transported back to the 70's a time when the ethos of big business had only just started to infiltrate our national game and threatened to leave a veritable trail of crushed egos and shattered dreams in its wake.


The boardroom becomes a battleground when the purchase of a new recruit pits the disgruntled head coach against club President. In the heat of battle, the players threaten a team-wide strike and a club legend will use the opportunity to usurp the presidency for himself. Whilst the men each fight for power and control of the Club's on and off field destiny, the game's best administrator watches his Machiavellian scheme unfold. Each man will face his truth. Only the strong will survive. But will The Club?

Delivered at a frenetic laugh-a-minute pace, The Club is not just a hilarious romp about footy, it's a time capsule piece that illuminates Australia as it was, half a century ago.

Director Jesse Richardson notes "Our production features an all-star cast of Brisbane based actors who've done an outstanding job of reinventing these iconic characters. If you like theatre and sports, you'll love The Club."
