BEWDY NEWK !

Set at Newk’s 70th birthday party in Sydney, Newcombe’s journey travels from naive 60’s schoolboy to the number one player in the world in the 70’s, to his days as Davis Cup captain, to the stroke he suffered in 2003. Numerous well-known guests drop by to celebrate the special day and share their memories. The play also captures hilarious moments from some of Newcombe’s many T.V commercials and business enterprises: Cinzano; Queensland Bananas; K-Tel Instruction albums. Newk is a grand story about wanting life to be a huge ride, where rest is secondary and finally how the zest and appetite for life never disappears but must be tempered.
