Synopsis: This is a play about an Australian Rules Football team called the Crows. The Crows aren’t very good but are determined to win the 1963 Grand Final, after not having won one for years. So the coaches set out to find a new player. They find one of the worlds greatest kickers - the only problem is he has never played football and isn’t interested in playing. It is up to the coaches and the great kickers cousin to convince him to learn how to play Aussie Rules and help the Crows win the 1963 championship.
