CAUGHT OUT

Written by Xavier Coy

Directed by Laurence Coy

Bondi Feast

18 – 20 July 2019 

Co-production with Take it Easy Productions

Skip, Bull, Runt and the Australian Cricket Team are on a tour of India, desperate to keep their number one ranking. The only problem is, they’re losing. Badly. For the acerbic Bull this is a matter of national pride, we can’t go back to Australia number two. For Skip, he’s under the pump, he leads by actions not by words and his actions are leaving a lot to be desired at the moment due to a poor run of form. Then there’s Runt, new to the team but not to cricket. He’s in the twilight years of his career, desperate to impress his teammates and lacking a little upstairs. What happens when jealousy, panic and desperation run wild? Bad decisions. Quickly.

Winner of the Sydney Fringe Award for Best Written Play where it enjoyed a sold out season, ‘Caught Out’ is a fast paced satire that looks back on one of the darkest days in Australian cricket history and pulls apart the dressing room and power dynamics that sent the world media into a spin, even causing then PM Malcolm Turnbull to condemn their actions. With a new and updated ending and the Cricket World Cup in full swing followed by the Ashes, now is as good a time as ever to see the satire that David Warner wouldn’t want to see.

Caught Out

State of the Arts – 3.5 stars

Caught Out, written by Xavier Coy and directed by Laurence Coy, concerns itself with the politics surrounding the greatest sport in the world – cricket – on one of its darkest days: the ball-tampering scandal of early 2018. Presenting a series of events that slightly warp those of real-life for both dramatic and comedic effect, the audience is offered a glimpse into what life must have been like for behind the camera the three culprits; which, when authentic, makes for some brilliant viewing regardless of your cricket knowledge.”
