On the eve of one of the most important games of his career, Welsh rugby legend Gareth Thomas received a warning: The Sun newspaper was going to ‘out’ him as gay. This is the story of two Welsh names bruised, but not beaten, by media speculation: Gareth ‘Alfie’ Thomas, 100 caps for Wales, now one of the world’s most prominent gay sportsmen; and his hometown, Bridgend, itself a victim of tabloid intrusion following the deaths of several young residents. Working with Alfie himself, and young people in Bridgend, Robin Soans joins forces with some of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies to tell a great story about sport, politics, secrets, life and learning to be yourself. Includes rehearsal photos and an essay on gay people in sport by Matthew Todd, editor of Attitude magazine.
