The Forwards by Stefo Nantsou


THEMES: High School, Football, Drinking, Reckless Behaviour
LENGTH: 60 Minutes
CAST SIZE: 3 – 4 Cast Members

Nothing ever happens in small town Pintoon. Except the footy. Everyone loves the footy.


Nothing ever happens in small town Pintoon. Except the footy. Everyone loves the footy. But the Pintoon Parrots can’t seem to break their losing streak. That is until they change their line up. Suddenly it’s goal after goal, and win after win. But after a pre-match party gets out of hand, the team’s new forwards might struggle to bring Pintoon the grand final victory they expect.

Created through workshops with students from regional high schools around Victoria, The Forwards deals with football culture, alcohol abuse and reckless behaviours in small country communities.


The Forwards was commissioned by Regional Arts Victoria in 2003 and has toured throughout regional Victoria and Queensland.

Published alongside The Apology by Stefo Nantsou
