Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, a lovely day at the Basin Reserve...

Please accept our invitation for you to give this Kiwi classic another season in the sun.

With beer, fights, spliffs, hotdogs and chilly bins you might be forgiven for thinking this is just another cricket fixture. But "What David Geary and Justin Gregory do in their play The Underarm, and it’s a brilliant stroke, is develop the brother motif. Brothers Col and Don – one Kiwi, the other Aussie – meet on the bank at the Basin Reserve for a present-day test between the two trans-Tasman rivals. When rain delays the start of play (some neat voiceover from John Morrison), Col and Don decide to re-create the events of that fateful day at the MCG, inviting the audience to act as judge and jury.

'The result is an often hilarious potted history of the match with some well-directed leg-pulls at Aussie-Kiwi relations.' -Harry Ricketts - NZ Listener

With an hour only to pack in and minimal technical requirements, be sure we're good for playing your pitch.
