It’s 2014. Australian tennis legend John Newcombe is turning 70 and the greats of tennis are arriving at his place for a barbie.
Come join the party as we take a light-hearted look back at the glory days of Australian tennis through the life of this sporting icon.
Written by award-winning playwright Kieran Carroll and performed by three-time Barry Award nominee and star of the recent hit film The Merger Damian Callinan, this comedic drama takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of this Aussie sporting legend in a time when racquets were wooden and sponsorship was rare.
Take a trip down memory lane with “Newk”, our hero on the world sporting stage (don’t forget his commercials for Cinzano, Aeroguard and Life Be In It!). An absolute must-see for all tennis fans and lovers of Australian sporting history.
