St. David’s Day Play Sample Text:
Narrator: OK people! Enough of the jokes! We shouldn’t lose sight of the serious things in life ..
Rugby player: Like Rugby! How could you have a conversation about Wales …. without mentioning rugby?
Comedian: (Reflecting) Hmm. I could!
Rugby player: (Indignantly) I don’t remember anyone asking you!
St. David: Now, boys! Remember my example – Love and peace! That’s what we want here today!
Rugby Player: Fair enough! I was only trying to say,
Rock fan: “There’s a dream I feel, so rare so real, of a World in Union”! Who will ever forget Shirley Bassey teaming up with those rugby players, at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, in 1999, for that Rugby World Cup!
Comedian: Dame Shirley Bassey – in rugby shorts? That must have been a sight to behold!
Rugby Player: Not quite! She wore a rather becoming gold gown, from what I can remember!
St. David: So, I’m guessing she didn’t get stuck into one of those scrums?
Rugby Player: No place for a lady! No, she did a fine job leading us in that ‘World In Union’ anthem – but the rest of the ‘play’ was down to us lads!
Narrator: And did you win?
Rugby Player: Not that world cup championship; but we have done pretty well in the Six Nations Championships, coming just behind the leaders, England, in overall number of victories and points.
Narrator: Good for you! It’s the taking part, after all, that counts. And we can all share the strengths of each other
Film Critic: And enjoy those strengths! What would the world be like without the acting talents of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Richard Burton, Catherine Zeta Jones
Comedian: Or the poetic writing of Dylan Thomas; and the magical tales of Roald Dahl – Giant Peaches, Big Friendly Giants, Fantastic Foxes .. he could write about anything!
Rock Fan: Like those bands: Stereophonics, Manic Street Preachers
St. David: Did you say Manic Street Preachers? Hmm, not so sure they’d have fitted in with my brethren!
