Crunch Time

Date: 27 Dec 2019

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.

David Williamson’s final play before retirement, Crunch Time tackles pertinent social issues head-on in a story of family and duty.

The cast includes John Wood and Guy Edmonds. Mark Kilmurry directs.
