The Cuttaway Currawongs are the laughing stock of their small coastal town. They’ve spent so long at the bottom of the footy ladder they’re basically rusted on. But some WD-40 arrives in the form of Jayma and Sonny — two Marngrook cousins named after the Aboriginal game that inspired AFL. It’s not long before the team realises that these two have what it takes to help them capture the flag for the first time in, well, forever… but turns out not everyone’s a fan.

Set within the era of Adam Goodes’ war-cry — and named after the number he immortalised — 37 is a loud, brash match between top dogs and underdogs that packs some serious bite. Featuring an ensemble of 10 performers, this highly-physical production is a little sweary and very sweaty.

Noongar Director Isaac Drandic and Trawlwoolway Pakana Playwright Nathan Maynard, the brilliant duo behind At What Cost?, return to kick another goal with this production that features breakout star Ngali Shaw. You bring your mates, we’ll bring the oranges.

Presented by Queensland Theatre and Melbourne Theatre Company
