Vincent O'Donnell

From Upbeat, 1:43 pm on 7 March 2016

Melbourne arts correspondent previews the Australian premiere of the New Zealand play The Underarm by David Geary and Justin Gregory. Vincent O'Donnell goes to a rehearsal and talk to cast members Chris Brougham and Brenden Cousterly. The Underarm is ostensibly about the infamous underarm cricket controversy of 1981 but looks at why Australian cricketer Greg Chappell ordered his younger brother Trevor to deliver the last ball of the last over underarm, making it impossible for New Zealand to score.
