Hi Welcome to the Crowdfunder page for An Evening with Gareth Bale
This is a new comedy play for voices written to celebrate Wales’ qualification for the 2016 European Football Championship.
It’s on at the Full Moon in Cardiff: Tues 31 Man Wed 1 and Thur 2 June doors open at 7.30 pm
And no, before you ask it doesn’t feature Gareth Bale, of Wales and Real Madrid, but it is directed by Gareth Bale (who’s an actor who happens to share the same name). Now we’ve cleared that up the play also features the comedic talents of Boyd Clack of High Hopes and Satellite City fame.
We’re trying to raise £1000 to help towards running costs, but here’s a little bit about the play first:
It’s taken Wales 58 years to get to a major tournament. Daf and Dave, two devoted fans, have one day. It should be enough but setbacks and misunderstandings put them in flight from the law and in danger of missing their plane.
An Evening with Gareth Bale is a fast-paced show that sees a coming together of the poetic and the comic that’s like a collision between Dylan Thomas and Robbie Savage.
Will Daf and Dave reach their goal? What does their quest to pay homage to their idol, Gareth Bale, say about modern Welshness and masculinity? Do lucky pants, technically, improve Wales’ chances?
The financial bit
This play is a profit share and any money we make will be divided out amongst the actors, but we also have cost such as venue hire, publicity and costumes.
