Footy Drama


On and off the field AFL inspires highly charged emotions. What better place to play out the love and loathing of Aussie rules football than on stage? Reserved Seating Only is the hilarious story of a football fanatic and the woman sitting next to him who hates the game and all it stands for. But my how things can change…

Starring real-life husband and wife, the highly accomplished David Ross Patterson and Celia Specht, Reserved Seating Only is a witty, thought provoking comedy about relationships, tolerance and a change of sides. Patterson plays, Al, the footy tragic. Specht plays Trina, the football skeptic who inherits her ex-husband’s reserved seats in their divorce.

Over four quarters of the first game of the season, see these two battle it out eventually meeting somewhere in the middle before the final horn blast.
