National Theatre of Scotland presents

In Time o’ Strife

By Joe Corrie
Adapted, designed and directed by Graham McLaren

On the 30th anniversary of the 1984 miners’ strike, the National Theatre of Scotland revives Joe Corrie's 1926 classic play about a Fife mining community buckling under the strain of a seven month lockout.

Driven by live, gutsy, folk-punk songs and intense, full-blooded choreography, this uncompromising production is a stark reminder that class conflict between those at the bottom of the social heap and those in power is perennial.

“McLaren's production unleashes a memorably angry, vivid and theatrical retelling of a vital story in Scottish history. It's an exhilarating experience and not to be missed.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“Gut-wrenchingly emotional”  “Vitally contemporary” ★★★★★ The Herald

“Intensely powerful”   “Brilliantly performed” ★★★★ The Times

“Breathtaking” ★★★★ Sunday Mail
