In Treherbert Rugby Club amongst the fag smoke and the singing, Rhys’s parents fell in love.

The Land of My Fathers and Mothers and Some Other People is a frenzied one-man cabaret mixing stand-up, singalongs and extracts from his Mam’s teenage diary to piece together the histories of his Welsh valley hometown.
