Over 250 men and boys lost their lives in the Gresford mining disaster of 1934. This moving play graphically recreates the events surrounding the calamitous pit explosion. Set against the public enquiry which followed, when Sir Stafford Cripps vigorously defended the miners' cause, this play traces the impact of the disaster and its aftermath on one family, and indeed a whole community devastated by the loss. To commemorate the anniversary of the disaster and to coincide with the unveiling of a new plaque at Gresford honouring the names of the men and boys who died, the performance on Friday 22 September will be dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives on that fateful night and in the subsequent rescue attempt.Author Michael Stevens.
