A Father. A Son. A Club. A Town. A Game. Fly Half.

Fly Half is a new play by Gary Lagden, with original songs by Gareth Moulton, that tells the story of a rugby playing steelworker from South Wales. Set in an industrial town, this play is a celebration of working class families who head out the match each week, stand pitch side with pride, supporting their local team. A lyrical hymn to one man’s passion for his family, his town and his beloved game of rugby.

Dates & Times

Fly Half - Fri 26 Mar 7:45pm Fri 26 Mar Neville Studio 7:45pm £12.50


A piece created from the heart, and Port Talbot born Lagden knows all about Welsh pride and passion, the mythology of rugby and the reality of working class life. Lagden’s play is collieries deep.

It is beautifully written – an extended poem, a free verse epic utilising the alliterative tricks and phrasing of Dylan Thomas to provide a rich, aural experience: “him, battered and bruised and beaming”. Fly Half deftly charts rugby’s metamorphosis from the old-style punch of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s to the professionalism and perfect physiques of the modern game.
