By Joe Corrie
Adapted, designed and directed by Graham McLaren
Featuring live music by The Shilling a Week Band

This acclaimed production is coming to the Ryan Centre, Stranraer on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 September at 7.30pm with a matinee on Wednesday 17 September at 2.30pm.

The play exposes the lives of a Fife mining family staring hunger and defeat in the face during the General Strike of 1926. 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 *****

“Breathtaking” Sunday Mail ****
