  • 2. Sports with Anthony Taufa and Tristan Black

    Usually, the guests on this show - mostly actors and comedians - tend not to have the answers to the sports questions, since the fields of theatre and sport tend to remain somewhat seperate. However Tristan Black and Anthony Taufa are currently starring in “Alone It Stands” at The Ensemble Theatre.Written by the Irish playwright John Breen, it tells the story of the 1978 Rugby Union match between a tiny team of amateurs from the Munster Rugby club in Limerick up against the all-conquering New Zealand national side the All Blacks. The hilarious, moving and heart-warming play has a cast of six, who take on all 62 roles including players, wives, fans, both coaches and even the team dog. Get your tickets to Alone It Stands here:
