This is the story of two Welsh names bruised, but not beaten, by media speculation; Gareth “Alfie” Thomas, 100 caps for Wales, once its captain, now the world’s most prominent gay sportsman; and his hometown, Bridgend.

On the eve of one of the most important games of his career, Welsh rugby legend Gareth Thomas received a warning: The Sun newspaper was going to "out" him as gay.

This is the story of two Welsh names bruised, but not beaten, by media speculation; Gareth “Alfie” Thomas, 100 caps for Wales, once its captain, now the world’s most prominent gay sportsman; and his hometown, Bridgend.

Working with Alfie himself, and young people in Bridgend, two of the UK’s most exciting theatre companies - National Theatre Wales and Out of Joint - have teamed up to tell a great Welsh story about sport, politics, secrets, life and learning to be yourself.

The Heart of Glass team are delighted to invite you to join us on a free trip to see Crouch, Touch, Pause, Engage at the Liverpool Playhouse at 7:30pm on 21st April 2015.

We anticipate that it will be a great night out and a chance for the Heart of Glass team to meet you all and experience one of Liverpool’s iconic theatres. If you would like to book or have any questions please feel free to contact Laura at either 01744 455087 or laura@heartofglass.org.uk
