Synopis: "It’s May 1979 in South Wales. Thatcher is counting her votes, Sid Vicious is spinning in his grave and six Welsh miners are trapped down a coal mine. As the men await their rescue, secrets emerge and accusations fly. Within two weeks, everything they believe in and everything they know will have changed."
The play has already enjoyed two critically-acclaimed runs in London (at Theatre503 in 2013 and Trafalgar Studios 2 in 2014), as well as a UK tour. The producers are Theatre503, Tara Finney Productions and Wales Millennium Centre, in association with jagged fence theatre.
