“A musical morality tale for this millennium. Maybe.”
Genre: One act musical comedy
Synopsis: Mirek is an elite international tennis player married to Bree, an Olympic 100m silver medallist. They are madly in love, highly photogenic and wildly ambitious. The world is at their feet. Except for one thing…
All Mirek wants is Number One ranking. Alas, his nemesis Roger Federer ensures that he will forever be Number Two. Together, Mirek and Bree hit upon a unique and utterly ‘inappropriate’ solution.
“Watch them sink to an all-time low as they reach for an all-time high…bold, provocative and darkly comedic!”
