Abstract

From the Australian team who brought you Eurobeat – The Eurovision Musical comes Do or Die. Craig Christie and Andrew Patterson have combined talents to bring us the tale of an ordinary high school facing ordinary problems in an extraordinary way!

When the school oval is leased to the local council for external use leaving only two nights a week for the school teams for training, the battle begins and draws the entire school community in. The struggling boys’ football team, under the watchful eye of their pushy coach, Mr. Richardson, is given the oval over the more successful girls’ hockey team. Matt Clifford and Kelly Patterson are the respective team captains and are willing to lay everything on the line to see their teams succeed but when they are faced with unrelenting school gossip and everyone seeming to be running their own agenda, there seems little hope of a solution. The principal, Mrs. Hamilton, does her best to manage a battle that is quickly spiralling out of control but it seems that the only person who can find middle ground is Mr. Webster, the new English teacher.

There are no spectators – everyone must choose a side. All must decide what they are fighting for and what they are willing to sacrifice in its pursuit. For both teams it’s all or nothing, it’s do or die, – but will the victory truly be worth the cost?
