In the 30th anniversary year 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.
Directed by Graham McLaren this was a powerful piece that I was assistant director for, I also designed the video elements of the show and played keyboards for some of the backing tracks.
