Author(s): David Williamson
Williamson's famous play about the uses and abuses of managerial power, which in 1976 foreshadowed the great changes that Australian football has since endured, proves even more prescient since the rise and fall of Super League. This is a play set behind the scenes, a head-on tackle of brawn versus bureaucracy.
David Williamson has written over thirty plays and is Australia's most successful playwright. His plays have been produced throughout Australia and internationally. A number of his stage works have been adapted for the screen, including The Removalists, Don's Party, The Club, Travelling North, Emerald City, Sanctuary and Brilliant Lies. He won many awards including three AFI's and eleven AWGIE awards.
