March 20 - April 13, 2019

Woolloomooloo, NSW



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.

“This is an exceptional piece of theatre with broad appeal.” - The Australian
