A classic Australian satire about power, corruption and greed.
"Tightly written … very funny … It is this dramatic skill which gives the play its power to absorb." - Washington Post

In the innocuous boardroom of an Australian Rules football club, corruption and greed reign supreme. The team hasn't won a game all season, despite forking out a small fortune to acquire a star player who couldn't care less about football. The coach wants to quit, the players threaten to strike, and the club president is embroiled in scandal. But the club's devious administrator, in cahoots with a former player and coach, would dispense with them all if it meant the team had a shot at the championship.
After three successful seasons in New York City, Australian Made Entertainment will be taking its unique brand of Aussie theatrics to the West Coast, but not before making one final splash in the Big Apple. For its final New York production, Australian Made Entertainment is very excited to present a cultural classic by Australia's most successful playwright. Winner of the Australian Writer's Guild award for Best Play, David Williamson's engaging satire The Club shines a harsh light on the questionable influence big business has on sports. With universal characters and recognizable situations, you don't need to know anything about football to enjoy witnessing the antics at this club, where back-stabbing and double-dealing are the order of the day.
Some play the game, others just get played.
