TORCH THEATRE’S AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTION ‘GRAV’ RETURNS FOR 2019
Written by Owen Thomas | Directed by Peter Doran | Starring Gareth J Bale
Gareth J Bale reprises the role of ‘Grav’ in this remarkable one-man show exploring the life and times of one of Wales’ most loved sons, Ray Gravell.
In October 2007 Ray Gravell, a man who for many embodied what it is to be Welsh, passed away after succumbing to diabetes complications. He was 56 years old.
Known to millions for his legendary exploits on the rugby field, ‘Grav’ was and is so much more than that. An actor, a cultural icon, a father, a husband, a man with a life packed full of stories that deserve to be heard once more.
With the blessing of Mari, Ray’s widow, and contributions from his Welsh and British Lions team mates, this one-man show will explore the life of a man who was as fascinating away from the rugby field as he was on it.
Following an incredible tour of Wales and the USA in 2018, including performances in New York and Washington DC, the Torch Theatre Company is delighted to once again bring the story of ‘Grav’ to The Welfare in 2019.
Whether you are a Rugby fan or not, only the hardest of hearts would fail to enjoy this production…
