It is 25 years snce the year-long miners strike halted the production of our pits while uniting and dividing our communities. Over the last 6 months young people in Ammanford have worked alongside professional artists to explore this divisive time from the little explored perspective of women. Based on oral histories from local women who were active during the strike, the production is a mult-faceted take on a time that has defined modern Britain.

From a personal perspective it has been an immense journey and with funding from Heritage Lottery Fund Wales, Arts Council Wales, Cronfa Sera and University of Lampeter we have been able to provide unique high quality learning experiences engaging some of Wales most exciting theatre artists.

We will opening tonight in Ammanford however this also marks our debut youth theatre tour so you may be able to catch us in another venue within South West Wales. The production is written by Bethan Marlow and the young people of Mess Up The Mess Theatre Company and we would really love to share this work with as many of you as possible.

We are very sad to hear of the passing of one of Wales’ most talented and funniest playwrights, Frank Vickery. A great loss to our Welsh theatre industry. He will be greatly missed.
