The Library Theatre, Tudor Square, Sheffield
Spectrum Theatre, Sheffield presents a new Musical
Strike! is from the team that produced last year’s sell-out, ‘Sterling Silver’.
“An absolutely brilliant show, We loved it and didn’t want it to finish!”
It’s 1984 and Paul Turner, young journalist, returns to his home, Silverton, a South Yorkshire mining village, a community in the middle of the miners’ strike. Tensions are running high. Childhood friends find themselves on opposite sides of the picket lines. On 18th June, violence erupts at the now famous ‘battle of Orgreave’.
With 8 original songs, ‘Strike!’ has all the warmth and humour of the mining community. The pickets, the police, the politicians and the press, all had their parts to play - and what price the truth?
Approximate running time 2 hours 30 minutes [including 20 minute interval]
Please note: unfortunately, The Library Theatre has no disabled access.
Tickets: £10 / £6 [under 18’s] available from 1st November at
