Damian Callinan The Merger

Hey Boss

Damian Callinan The Merger

Nominee Barry Award 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Nominee West Australian Editor’s Choice Award, 2016 FRINGE WORLD 

Now an acclaimed feature film adaptation starring Damian Callinan, Kate Mulvany and John Howard, Callinan returns to the stage with the one man tour-de-force that inspired the Cinefest OZ Prize nominated ‘instant classic’ (Film Blerg).

The dysfunctional Bodgy Creek Roosters Footy Club is in trouble and will either have to fold or merge with their arch rivals - the Hudson’s Flat Cougars. But prodigal son coach Troy Carrington has other ideas. To save the club he embarks on a program to recruit refugees and unwittingly takes the community on a journey of change.

'A well-crafted play, hilarious and gutsy, charming and dangerous, provocative and subversive. ★★★★½ ' ArtsHub

'The Merger is another terrific solo effort from one of this country's finest character comedians. ★★★★' Herald Sun
