Kit Richards Scandal! A Reflection on Essendon's Doping Saga: The Musical?

In 2013 Essendon Football Club was rocked by one of the biggest doping scandals in AFL history.

Scandal! A Reflection on Essendon’s Doping Saga: The Musical? is a (slightly) biased look at what it means to be a diehard fan when your heroes fall from grace. Featuring all original music and a live band.

From the creator of award-nominated show Wool! A History of Australia’s Wool Industry: The Musical, this show will feature vignettes from ASADA to WADA, Hird to Robson and more.

'Entertaining and musically strong.' Chortle (UK)

Featuring Kit Richards, Elly Hewitt, Dom Buckham & Kelly Dingeldei.
Directed by Lucy Rees with script editing and dramaturgy by Scott Edgar.
