David Williamson’s latest and final play, Crunch Time, has its Queensland premiere at The J Theatre in Noosa, following its world premiere in Sydney.
The Noosa season is presented by NOOSA alive!, the annual performing arts festival of which Australian theatre heavyweight David Williamson is a founding patron.
Crunch Time is Williamson’s final play before he retires.
The play is a fundraiser for NOOSA alive! 2020, with Williamson donating royalties from the performances to the festival.
The production comes direct from the world premiere in Sydney at the highly acclaimed Ensemble Theatre.
Directed by Mark Kilmurry with a cast including John Wood (Blue Heelers) and Guy Edmonds (Betrayal), Crunch Time sparkles with razor sharp wit and humour, tackling pertinent social issues head-on in a tale of family and duty.
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.
