The Merger by Hey Boss

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 OzFlix Best Film, Cinema Australia Audience Awarded and dual AACTA nominated ‘instant classic’ (Film Blerg).

In this Barry Award nominated classic, Damian brings to life Bodgy Creek: a township that has seen better days. The mill's closed; the Tidy Town sign has fallen into the long grass and no-one knows why the Christmas Market happens in September. The dying town is about to claim its next victim: the footy club. 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 programme to recruit refugees and unwittingly takes the community on a journey of change.

Fans of the film will watch beguiled as Callinan deftly plays every role and proves that he is ‘one of Australia’s finest character comedians’ (Herald Sun).

This tour is still in development and awaiting funding confirmation. Further performance information will be available in December 2019.
