Joe Prop 

The play tells the story of 12 year old, Joe Kavanagh, who has a dream. A dream big enough to overcome any obstacle. Medication for a childhood illness has left him overweight and a target for school bullies. However, Joe finds solace on the School Rugby team as a prop in the scrum. The play is set in Joe’s bedroom. A place far away from bullies, and illness where he gets to be the greatest Tight Head Prop in world rugby and captain of a winning Irish Rugby World Cup team.
