The Forwards @ Broadbeach Cats Football Club
Presented By Bleach* Festival, Griffith University & Shock Therapy Productions
By Shock Therapy Productions and Stefo Nantsou
This tragic-comedy about friendship, sporting culture and small town rivalries will blur the line between actor and audience throughout its Bleach* Festival 2017 seasons.
Back on the Gold Coast by popular demand, The Forwards will be presented across two unique and intimate city locations.
The Forwards follows the story of a small town called Pintoon where nothing ever happens…. except the footy!
Each cast member plays the show’s live soundtrack as well as several characters from the town including the three star “forwards,” Hoges, Tractor and Gary Rabbit.
The town is buzzing as the 'Pintoon Parrots' finally make it to the Grand Final, but tensions boil over in the build up to the big game, leading to some devastating repercussions.
Suitable for audiences 15+. Contains drug references. Written and directed by Zeal Theatre’s Artistic Director Stefo Nantsou, featuring Sam Foster, Hayden Jones and Ellen Bailey.
Shock Therapy Productions would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Broadbeach Cats Football Club.
Shock Therapy Productions is supported by the City of Gold Coast through the ACCELERATE Triennial Grant Program.
