Written by award-winning Melbourne playwright Kieran Carroll, and performed by the star of recent hit film The Merger, Damian Callinan, NEWK (The John Newcombe Story) traces the life of the great Australian tennis champion of the 1960s and 70s.

Set in 2014 at Newk's 70th birthday, the show is a wonderfully moving portrait - both drama and comedy - of a man striving for success as the game goes into full colour in the 1970s and beyond.

Don't forget to bring the Aeroguard and Cinzano for the night!
