Suzie Flack has made it to the big league. The first female Australian Rules footballer to play professionally with the men – which is why you haven’t heard of her. She doesn’t exist.
Fierce is not a just play about football. It is a play about who gets to do what. Who gets to inhabit which spaces. Who is allowed to succeed at which pursuits. What happens when someone refuses to sit neatly in the box society has allotted her.
Janine Watson (Ensemble Theatre’s Unqualified, Bell Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet) directs Lauren Richardson, Zelman Cressey-Gladwin, Stacey Duckworth, Martin Jacobs, Chantelle Jamieson, Felix Johnson and Andrew Shaw. This is the Sydney premiere of an ode to the drama that is AFL football, masculine culture, and the prevailing idea of what it means to be Australian.
“An attractive, sophisticated play where the complexities of gender brush against the purest love of the game.” ★★★★ – The Age.
“This is an exceptional piece of theatre with broad appeal.” – The Australian.
