About the play

The Club is set in the 70's when amateur-based footy was turning professional, coaches were no longer ex-players from the teams they played in and businessmen took over the running of the clubs. Written in 1977, The Club presciently depicts the big issues still facing football teams today: money rather than team spirit governing club management, coaches summarily sacked, administrators controlling decisions, players bought for outrageous sums, and bitter disputes played out in the media.

The Club shows Williamson at his best; writing about Australian men engaged in macho competitive battles. The play is big, broad and full of humour... even if you know nothing about footy.
