Event Description

National Theatre Wales, Out of Joint & Arcola Theatre with Sherman Cymru 

Written by Robin Soans
Directed by Max Stafford-Clark

“I was doing something nobody had done before, and if you’re the first to do something, you have to be prepared to take the sh*t for it.”

On the eve of one of the most important games of his career, Welsh rugby legend Gareth Thomas received a warning: The Sun newspaper was going to "out" him as gay.

This is the story of two Welsh names bruised, but not beaten, by media speculation; Gareth “Alfie” Thomas, 100 caps for Wales, once its captain, now the world’s most prominent gay sportsman; and his hometown, Bridgend.

Working with Alfie himself, and young people in Bridgend, two of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies - National Theatre Wales and Out of Joint - have teamed up to tell a great Welsh story about sport, politics, secrets, life and learning to be yourself.

Hi Debbie,

Yes, there is a tour of England happening too - those dates should be announced soon too. It will also have a run in the Arcola Theatre as well, so plenty of opportunity to see it!

Hope to see you there!

Is this show going to England ? There are many drama and theatre students who are very interested in Max Stafford Clark's work and verbatim theatre there too . I hope it sells out here in Wales !

I met Max shortly after he and Sheila Feehily had been to Bridgend to do some initial research and the whole project sounded fascinating.

Really looking forward to it as a theatre fanatic who also loves rugby!
