DEFEATING ROGER FEDERER Comes to New Theatre, Newtown
New Theatre, Newtown presents Defeating Roger Federer, a new musical by Wendy Lewis. It's a bold, provocative & darkly comedic two-hander with a talented cast fresh from last year's production of Nine at the Seymour Centre.
Defeating Roger Federer is the story of a straight white couple who sink to an all-time low as they reach for an all-time high.
Director Jane Eakin says: 'What drew me to this new musical was the sheer audacity of the material. It holds a mirror up to a society that is so hungry for success, it will cannibalise itself in every effort to achieve its goal.'
Andy Leonard (Nine, Keating!)
Sophie Perkins (Carrie the Musical, Mad World)
with Lindsay Partridge (Ruthless!, Priscilla) on piano
Wendy Lewis (The Devil's Caress, What's My Colour?)
Jane Eakin (Bent101, street smart)
