THE AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTION “GRAV’ RETURNS FOR 2023
Starring Gareth John Bale | Written by Owen Thomas | Directed by Peter Doran
In October 2007 Ray Gravell, a man who for many embodied what it is to be Welsh, passed away after succumbing to Type 2 Diabetes related complications. 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 J Bale reprises the role of ‘Grav’ in this remarkable one-man show exploring the life and times of one of Wales’ most loved sons, Ray Gravell, written by Owen Thomas. With the blessing of Mari, Manon and Gwenan, 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.
Following an incredible 136 shows, several tours of Wales, performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, London, New York, Washington DC and at the Principality Stadium for the National squad, Bale and Thomas are delighted to once again bring the story of ‘Grav’ to the stage for 2023.
Directed by the Torch Theatre’s Artistic Director Peter Doran, Grav will remind the you once more of a unique life well lived and of a man who did so much more than eat soft centres. Whether you are a Rugby fan or not, only the hardest of hearts would fail to enjoy this production.
