3rd May 1979, South Wales. Thatcher is counting her votes, Sid Vicious is turning in his grave and six Welsh miners are trapped down a coalmine. Over the span of two weeks everything these men believe in and everything they know will have changed. Chris Urch’s debut play is packed full of blistering dark comedy and a generation of lost voices.
Land of Our Fathers is a co-production by Theatre503 and Tara Finney Productions.
Tickets can be booked through ATG.
