Based on an original script by rugby journalist Rob Robertson, award-winning Firebrand’s entertaining new play explores the man behind the voice and his personal dedication to rugby as both the sport he loved and as a way to enable young people to achieve their potential in life.
The play is a love story between Bill, his wife Bette, the Scottish Borders and the game of rugby. It uses a range of storytelling techniques to create a gripping, humorous and moving piece of theatre that celebrates the romantic love story at the heart of the extraordinary achievements of a great Scottish icon, whose lifelong passion for his sport and its values transcended his simple Borders origins and brought him international fame and worldwide popular affection.
