Written & Directed by John Breen
The critically acclaimed Alone It Stands returns to Dublin’s Olympia Theatre for a limited run from Monday 25th February to Saturday 2nd March 2013.
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 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.
With mesmeric ensemble playing – 6 actors recreate 62 roles in re-telling this story that inspires and perspires in the same evening! 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.
