Torch Theatre Company Presents
GRAV
 
In October 2007 Ray Gravell, a man who for many embodied what it is to be Welsh, passed away after succumbing to complications resulting from contracting diabetes. 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.
 
 
Gareth Bale stars as ‘Grav’ in a play written by Owen Thomas that celebrates the man and the legend. 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.
 
Tickets £13/ £11

LipService, Britain’s favorite literary lunatics, present their multi award winning cult Brontë sisters spoof!
 
Withering Looks takes an “authentic” look at the lives and works of the Brontë sisters – well, two of them actually, Anne’s just popped out for a cup of sugar.
 
The classic comic duo just couldn’t resist the urge to dust off their crinolines, wear flattering bonnets and sit at rained-lashed windows in a pale and decorative manner.  Don’t miss this chance to share in the silliness! 
 
Peopled with many of the characters we know and love, Maggie Fox and Sue Ryding move effortlessly from frock to frock coat.
