The Land of My Fathers and Mothers and Some Other People
In Treherbert Rugby Club, amongst the fag smoke and the singing, Rhys' parents fell in love. Rhys has never fallen in love, but he thinks it's a nice thing to do because that's what his Mam said. It's all in her diary. Rhys has read it all. In 1977, while listening to David Cassidy in a bedroom decorated with Jackie posters, Rhys' Mam wrote about a first date, a first kiss and a first weekend away. This diary is Rhys' history from a small town in the Rhondda Valley. The Land of My Fathers and Mothers and Some Other People
is an all singing all dancing re-enactment of what Rhys' Mam wrote down 40 years ago. This frenzied one man cabaret mixes stand-up, dance and good old fashioned sing along to breathe life into his Mam's stories, bring Treherbert Rugby Club back to life.
