October 31st 1978. Thomond Park, Limerick. Cheers and jeers echo through the crowd as the all-amateur Munster rugby team ready for battle against the best team in the world, the legendary All Blacks. Nobody thought they could go the distance — but the scrappy Irish lads walked off the pitch with a 12-0 victory.
The game was never televised, but the myth of this historic skirmish lives on in John Breen’s fast and funny play tackling the stories of those whose lives were touched by the unexpected win. A talented team of performers cheer, scrum and charge through 62 characters, bringing to life both teams, the fans and even animals!
Sports fans and theatre fans alike will love this mad-cap David and Goliath tale about the ultimate underdogs.
