A tale of love and rugby... and what matters most.
Nova Theatre’s comedy drama Winners shines a spotlight on rugby and gender roles in Wales, told through a couple who have got their priorities wrong, who want to change, but don’t know how.
Cassie is from a big rugby family and Dafydd was a rugby player for a while - semi-professional - but he never quite made the push. Cassie supported Dafydd in his career, partly because she wanted him to achieve things she could never achieve.
Now, she’s angry at him for giving up. Maybe he wants to try something different….he’s just not sure what. Cassie and Dafydd do love each other, but lately, rugby of all things has started to bring out the worst in them.
Nova’s superb comedy-drama Winners was a huge hit when it was performed earlier this year. Now, the audio drama, Winners is available to Taliesin audiences for two weeks, 23 November – 5 December.
Lowri Jenkins, Winners writer said: “Winners is about a couple who love each other and rugby. It’s about our expectations of one another and when we don’t quite meet them. [...] We want audiences to have a good time, to laugh, maybe cry, and relate to our story.”
Winners is available to listen to in two episodes via Soundcloud.
Suitable for age 16+
Please note that Winners contains strong language, adult themes, and scenes which some listeners may find upsetting.
