Newk: The John Newcombe Story | 14 February 2020 from8:00 PM @ Frankston Arts Centre 37 Davey St, Frankston
Set in 2014 at Newk's 70th birthday in Sydney, Newcombe's journey travels from naive 1960s schoolboy, to the No. 1 player in the world in the 1970s, to his time as Davis Cup Captain, to the stroke he suffered in 2003.
Performed by Damian Callinan, three time Barry Award nominee and star of recent hit film The Merger, the play portrays a highly determined and ambitious man burning through a quickly changing world. Aware he's putting his family second emotionally while conscious of providing for them financially, the play exposes the exhausting schedules that even players of yesteryear endured. Volatile off-court politics are also rife as the game moves into full blown professionalism.
The play also captures hilarious moments from some of Newcombe's numerous commercials and business enterprises: Cinzano, Queensland Bananas and K-Tel tennis instruction albums!
