Jack's Ashes

“163 to win? We’ve got this!”  

So begins possibly the worst team talk you’ve ever heard… 

Former professional cricketer Jack seeks to motivate his players, but as wickets fall like a ticking time bomb the anecdotes from the ashes of his career prove less than inspirational…

As Jack pads up to go out and save the day, ‘Jack’s Ashes’ offers a humorous insight into the mental frailties that can cloud the mind and the distractions that can lead to ruin.


“A compelling, heartfelt and pleasantly humorous performance that packed a punch for audience members from all walks of life”  –  The West Australian 

“Hilarious night out”  –  South Western Times

“Clever and impactful”  - ️️️️️Bunbury Herald

“Must be seen to be appreciated” –  Adelaide Review

Written by Tim Marriott & Mathew Banes. Performed by Tim Marriott (BBC’s The Brittas Empire) with recorded contributions from the cricket world including: 

David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd 

Jonathan Rice 

Shane Watson & 

Toby from ‘Cricket District’
