The local footy team of this small coastal town have spent so long at the bottom of the ladder they might as well be welded to it. This year a new hope arrives: the Marngrook cousins. Named after the Aboriginal game that inspired AFL, they’re match fit to bring home the team’s first flag in forever.

A little sweary and very sweaty, this powerhouse new production featuring a cast of 10 hits just as hard with the laughs as it does its searing social commentary.

Set within the era of Adam Goodes’s war cry – and named for the number he immortalised – 37 asks ten actors to throw themselves into this world of blood and sweat to get at the values that drive a national obsession. Community, identity, the price of winning and the meaning of a goal: they’re all up for grabs.

Penned by Nathan Maynard – twice named Tasmanian Aboriginal Artist of the Year – and directed by Isaac Drandic (The Birthday Party, ABC’s Cleverman), 37 also sees AACTA award-winner Ngali Shaw return to the stage after his winning turn in Jacky.

Whether you’re a footy fanatic or not, 37 is a reminder that honest conversations are more than a ball toss. It matters where you stand.
