Wonderland: Northern Stage

Description

Cracks appear on all sides as embattled miners are torn apart trying to protect their livelihoods and families in Wonderland, performed on 27th and 28th February 2019 at Northern Stage.

It's 1983. Two 16 year olds wait nervously at the pithead. Guided by a veteran miner, they descend into the brotherhood, banter, searing heat and liquid blue light of Welbeck Colliery.

Meanwhile in London, an American CEO known as The Butcher is brought in to reform King Coal. Pits close and a strike is called.

A Tory MP tussles with his leader’s hard line ideology, whilst an eccentric dandy is sent undercover to break up the strike. Cracks appear on all sides as the embattled miners are torn apart trying to protect their livelihoods and families. Nothing will be the same again.

Wonderland is a spirited and uplifting drama written by a miner’s daughter. Expect dark humour and tension in this 360° look at the events leading up to and during the miner’s strike.
