The Masters image

“Brilliant purveyors of physical comedy, dexterously employing detailed characterisation and slapstick… well honed physicality and precise theatricality is hilarious.”
- Sydney Morning Herald

La Mama presents a production by The Business



The Masters image You were charmed by them in their award-winning show The Concert, enthralled with The Business… As Usual, loved One Man's Business and were blown away by Big Business. Now they're back! Paul, Barry, Ray and Pierre return to the Carlton Courthouse with their much anticipated new show The Masters.

Barry (sprinter), Paul (pole vaulter), Ray (archery) & Pierre (discus) are thrilled to have been selected to represent Australia in Budapest for the World Masters - an international sporting competition for older athletes. With matching tracksuits, a rigorous training schedule and one goal in mind, NOTHING can stop them!

Will Barry defeat his old rival, Utu of Algeria in the 100 meters sprint? What if Ray's arthritis won't let him grip his bow and arrow? Will Pierre yet again confuse and dazzle his opponents into submission with his trademarked Pierre Discus Two-Hop? Will Paul get to soak in the famous Hungarian hot tubs with his mate from Greece, Divalia Fargos and where did he put the keys to the minibus?

Don't miss this hilarious night out with The Business in their most ambitiously athletic adventure ever… The Masters.
