The Longest Minute
The Empire Theatre presents a Queensland theatre production about the night that 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 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 knock-backs, just like the luckless Cowboys.
