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

The Sydney Premiere of



Written by Jane e. Thompson
Directed by Janine Watson

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.

Fierce is not a just play about football. It is a play about who gets to do what. Who gets to inhabit which spaces. Who is allowed to succeed at which pursuits. Fierce explores what happens when someone refuses to sit neatly in the box society has allotted her.

Janine Watson (Unqualified, Romeo & Juliet) directs the Sydney Premiere of this ode to the drama that is AFL football, masculine culture, and the prevailing idea of what it means to be “Australian”.

“Jane e. Thompson has worked a clever thought experiment into an attractive, sophisticated play where the complexities of gender brush against the purest love of the game.” ★★★★ - The Age
