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
