THE LONGEST MINUTE

One football club, one family, and one unforgettable NRL grand final. Where were you the night of the 2015 NRL Grand Final? The night when long-time underdogs the North Queensland Cowboys won in an all-Queensland nail-biter that changed the game, and the state, forever. For one family of Cowboys diehards, their whole lives have led up to this moment.

Jess Wright was born on the night of the North Queensland Cowboys’ first game in Townsville. Daughter of Foley Shield legend Frank ‘Black Flash’ Wright, she grew up as a footy fanatic with big dreams, silky skills and boundless ambition to play. But as a girl in a male-dominated sport, she faces more than her fair share of knockbacks, just like the luckless Cowboys. Despite their relentless string of losses, Jess still dares to believe in her team, and herself.

The script was co-commissioned by JUTE Theatre Company and Queensland Theatre and premiered in 2018 in Cairns, Townsville, Brisbane and Rockhampton.
