Show Info

Written and Directed by John Breen

With Ed Malone, Rob McDermott, David O’Hara, Henry Raber, and Sarah Street

On October 31, 1978, a small Irish rugby team faced off against the New Zealand All Blacks, rightly considered one of the best rugby teams in history. Ireland was in the grip of a terrible recession and war was waging in Northern Ireland, and this scrappy team from Munster’s surprise victory rocked the island. 

Award-winning Irish playwright/director John Breen revisits this David vs. Goliath story that captured and entranced Irish people everywhere. Six actors playing 62 characters recreate this dynamic sporting event in a performance that The Stage called “poetic and exceptional.”
