The play traces Chris’s life story from Cwmafan through significant moments, his performance and broadcasting career to his extraordinary charity work notably for Diabetes Wales.
The script is based upon Chris’ three volume autobiography and private audio tape recordings with his long time friend the writer PT Rose
The recordings were part of the process of creating a stage show. Chris was tragically taken from us just before that original show was about to go into production. Extracts from the audio tapes have been released and can be heard on line.The premiere in June will include a range of songs important to Chris and his enormous fan base of followers in the ‘Chris Needs Friendly Garden’
