On October 31 1978 an Irish amateur side, Munster, played the mighty All Blacks, the undisputed kings of rugby, in a rugby match at Thomond Park. Munster played as if their lives depended on it, and even the earthworms in the Limerick pitch were cheering for them. The Goliaths didn't know what had hit them: the score was 12-0 to the Irish side. From this piece of Irish sporting history John Breen has fashioned a funny, lively play in which the versatile cast are in a constant state of transformation as they play the rival teams, spectators, assorted bystanders, small children, dogs, cars and even the ball, with no props and only a half-time change of shirt. Directed by Mark Fitzgerald and assisted by Marc O'Connor this show is not to be missed! It runs from the 17th to the 20th of October in the Bank Of Ireland Theatre, NUIG. Tickets â‚¬5/â‚¬8 available from the Socsbox
