The internationally renowned Alone It Stands returns to Wellington for a limited run from 19 August to 5 September, 2015.

In anticipation of the All Blacks attempt to defend the Webb Ellis Trophy, the Wellington Irish Society proudly presents the comedy by John Breen that tells the now legendary story of the 1978 rugby match at Thomond Park, Ireland between Irish provincial side Munster and the mighty All Blacks.

Munster's 12-0 victory in this match remains the only time any Irish team, national or otherwise, have ever beaten the All Blacks.

"...the cleverest, funniest, most brilliantly crafted play you are ever likely to see..." - Irish Times

“…This show supplies a winning formula of comedy and pathos…. the whole evening is a gloriously live experience “- The Guardian

In this comedic and highly entertaining portrayal of the match, six actors portray both teams, children, fans, relatives, a dog and even a rugby ball – all with no props and only a half time change of shirt!

After the success of Playboy of the Western World last year, the Wellington Irish Society is pleased to deliver another Irish theatre classic – where the audience are invited to a vibrant 'pub theatre' experience, culture and legendary craic!

As the iconic Wellington Irish Society is transformed into a rugby pitch - wear your rugby colours and cheer along with this vibrant celebration of rugby culture.

7.30pm 19 August – 5 September
No Shows Sun/Mon/Tues

Tickets: $20 general / $10 concession (student, senior, community services card holder)
