PROGRAMMER QUOTE: “Become The One is perfect programming for the presentation mix Arts Centres need today. It’s contemporary, funny, moving, and an Australian, localised story. Simple and effective set, engaging Australian script and Lab Kelpie remain one of our best theatre companies to work with.” - Richard Fitzgerald Executive Producer The Bowery Theatre. St Albans.    

An incisive and contemporary new comedy-drama that asks the question: what would you do for love?

When Noah captures the attention of Tom, a celebrated AFL player nearing the end of his career, sparks immediately fly. But as the season progresses and their relationship grows, questions around identity, sexuality and our devotion to hyper-masculinity begin to surface, forcing them – and us – to consider what happens to love when good intentions and patience aren’t enough anymore. 

Using a clever mix of comedy, romance and drama, Become The One explores the pressure and continual need for men to perform – on and off the field – and the repercussions when you don’t.
