What would you do for love?
When Noah captures the attention of Tom, a celebrated AFL player nearing the end of his career, sparks immediately fly. But as the season progresses and their relationship grows, questions around identity, agency and our devotion to hyper masculinity begin to surface, forcing us to consider what happens to love when good intentions and patience aren’t enough anymore.
An award-winning romantic comedy featuring two vibrant, lovable characters at its heart, Become The One explores why a footballer would choose to remain closeted, and why their openly gay partner would choose to accept it.
Winner of the 2018 Playtime Award for New Writing, this funny, smart and challenging drama will show the true meaning of bravery and what it might take to do the right thing – as a lover, as a high-profile sportsman, as a human being – to become the one.
Warnings: Adult themes, some coarse language

“Heart wrenching, raw and categorically brave. Become The One doesn’t let you off the hook. You’re suspended in the tension of this relationship with the characters. We need more of this on our stages.” - 5 Stars - Theatre People
