Description

What happens on the footy trip doesn’t always stay on the footy trip. When things go wrong in Thailand, only three people know the whole story. There’s Liam, an NRL workhorse who’s devoted to his code and his teammates; his older brother Dean, a top pick for the Brownlow, who tries desperately to clean up Liam’s mess; and Amber, a promising young athlete who rests uneasily on the edge of complicity and victimhood.

Cutting through the media-managed clichés of professional football, The Sublime plots an emotionally charged trajectory to expose human faults that go way beyond the sporting field.

The Sublime was first produced by Melbourne Theatre Company, premiering at the Arts Centre Melbourne, Fairfax Studio on August 22, 2014.
