Summer is the time for ice cream, complaining about the heat…and for tennis.
It’s 2014. Australian tennis legend John Newcombe is turning 70 and the greats of tennis are arriving at his place for a barbie – for once he doesn’t have to cook! 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.
“Newk! is a wonderful show full of memorabilia and belly laughs. You will remember things you didn't even realise you knew as you travel down one of Australia's iconistic paths” What Did She Think
“….wonderfully constructed, sharply directed and brilliantly performed. You don't need to be a tennis-nut to enjoy it, but if you are, you will absolutely devour this show” You Should See It (Melbourne)
