This now legendary story set on 31st October in 1978 when Munster Rugby played the mighty All Blacks – in a David v Goliath scenario played out in Thomand Park – Munster Rugby served up one of the sporting stories of the century when they played like their lives depended on it and beat the All Blacks 12-0.
Check out some image from the day below:
John Breen took pen to paper and wrote the play Alone It Stands about this momentous day. The match was never televised so you will have to take our word for what happened and come along and see for yourself what happens when Munster, the Kiwis, the crowd, the ball, the dog and the pregnant woman all push and shove to create one momentous day.
With mesmeric ensemble playing – 6 actors recreate 72 roles in re-telling this story that inspires and perspires in the same evening!
Alone It Stands written and directed by Eugene O’Brien comes to the Civic Theatre Tallaght on Monday, 23rd until Saturday 28th September 2013 @ 8pm. Tickets are on sale from the Civic Theatre Box Office – phone 01 4627477 or book online HERE.
