Danny Mellor’s play Undermined is a look at the miners’ strike through the eyes of people who are losing everything except their friends.

‘Police Brutality? Money problems? No worries, I’ve got my mates!’ Inspired by the accounts of miners who lived through the strike, Undermined depicts a year where friendships were strengthened and communities came together. Experience the events through the eyes of young miner Dale, as he takes you through his personal story inviting you into the action. This one-man show explores the humour and struggles of the miners’ strike through energetic and gripping storytelling. Danny Mellor presents a youthful and contemporary approach to one of Britain’s most controversial disputes.

This performance is part of the Red Ladder Local touring initiative.
