Fly Half - The Play

Set in an industrial town, it's a celebration of working-class families who head out to the game each week, stand pitch side with pride, supporting their local grassroots team.

A lyrical hymn to one man's passion for his family, his town and his beloved game of rugby, Fly Half is a story of love, loss, community and sport, which rages against the beige of modern life. It was awarded Critics' Choice of 2018 by British Theatre Guide and BritishTheatre.com

It is beautifully written - an extended poem, a free verse epic utilising the alliterative tricks and phrasing of Dylan Thomas to provide a rich, aural experience: "him, battered and bruised and beaming". Fly Half deftly charts rugby's metamorphosis from the old-style punch of the '60s, '70s and '80s to the professionalism and perfect physiques of the modern game.
