In 1984 the miners were defeated, their families were torn apart and the media circus went home. John Godber's epic new play traces what happened to miner Harry and his wife Dot in the thirty years after the strike. Suddenly they were thrown together, with new battles to fight, and new jobs to hold down; from window cleaning in Wakefield to running a boarding house in Bridlington; but life would never be the same again!

The Pits may have gone, but the shifts are still seismic! Performers John Godber, Jane Thornton. AuthorJohn Godber.ProducerJohn Godber Company.ProducerTheatre Royal Wakefield.DirectorJohn Godber.
