An acclaimed play exploring the Miners’ Strike performed at the historic home of the Durham miners on the anniversary of the start of the dispute.
This performance of Undermined will be followed by a Q&A with actor and writer Danny Mellor, and local people who were active in the strike.
Based on true stories and events from the 1984-85 strike, the play features just one man, one chair, and one pint. It comes to Durham following an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival.
It tells the epic tale of the brave men and women who stood up and fought for what they believed in. It evokes a year when friendships were strengthened, and communities came together in the face of adversity.
Our thanks to Nasuwt North East for their support for this event.
