In The Club

Annie, Ruby, and Olivia are going out.

They just want to get loose, get laid, and get love. But they are women in a world of men… and not just any men – Gods among men. Their beloved boys, the boys of the AFL. And the rules of the game out in the world of the night club are merciless. The lines of division are very clear. Toe that line or cop the foul.

Written by Patricia Cornelius, one of Australia’s most awarded and uncompromising playwrights, In The Club is a powerful and compelling work that shines a fierce light on consent, coercion, and sexual violence. Co-produced by Theatre Works and Bullet Heart Club, this Victorian premiere season is directed by Kitan Petkovski (The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven, Burgerz) and will be realised on the stage by a team of exceptional local artists.

Running for two weeks only, this highly anticipated season of Cornelius’ brutally poignant play bravely lifts the lid on a challenging subject and exposes unwritten rules. A powerful addition to the Victorian Arts Calendar, not to be missed.

One of Australia’s longest-running independent theatres, Theatre Works is constantly reinvigorating and reimagining the sector by providing a hotbed for artist and audience development. In The Club is playing as a part of the 2023 “By Theatre Works” programming stream.
