'The Game' a play by Bradley McCaw is now available for purchase through Australian Script Centre.
“The Game” is an epic comedy/fantasy where two siblings get sucked into the world of video game, fighting crazy (and very funny) characters to save the kingdom of 'Farnawee' from an evil queen. The play explores the importance of family in the modern day, and questions what role technology plays in keeping a family together. Think 'Monty Python' meets 'Harry Potter' & 'Lord of The Rings.'
The play was first commissioned by Brisbane Boys Grammar in 2013, and was further developed by An Old Fashioned Production Company with support from the Arts Centre Gold Coast.
A professional touring production is scheduled for 2018.

It’s November 2016. Another group of ‘about to be’ grown ups descend upon Australia’s party capital… the Gold Coast. Like many of the other high school graduates turned party goers, Toni has a steady boyfriend (Troy) but has headed to schoolies a day early with her friends – long time-fun-girl Greta, who parties hard and asks questions later, and Pip, her best friend that would do anything for her… When Greta learns of Troy’s plans to ask for Toni’s hand in marriage, she forges a plan to find each of the girl a ‘man for the week.’ Enter Tye, Seb and Ron, three boys just looking for a ‘good time…’ Well, so they thought… When both groups come face to face at the ‘Party of the century,’ each is faced to question what the term ‘getting lucky’ really means. Where themes of promiscuity versus frivolity, and sensation versus intimacy, are sent to battle in a haze of alcohol. Each individual is called to challenge their belief in adhering to the ‘status quo.’
