Irish playwright John Breen’s heart-warming comedy Alone it Stands, a ballsy, true tale of triumph over impossible odds on the field, on at Ensemble Theatre from Thursday 25 January to Saturday 2 March.

Based on the famous 1978 rugby match in Limerick, Ireland, this David vs. Goliath story follows the all-amateur Munster rugby team as it tackles the mighty New Zealand All Blacks.

Jumping straight from modern Irish folklore to the stage, Breen’s fast-paced piece of theatre will see the cast of six take on 62 roles including players, wives, rabid fans, the coach and a loyal dog.
