The Miner’s Strike Retold.
Undermined @ CAST Second Space, Waterdale Doncaster. 15th March.
There is no getting away from the massive impact The Miner’s Strike had on Doncaster’s community. Now Edinburgh Fringe performer Danny Mellor brings his first touring independent performance to CAST to give a fresh take on those affected. One pint, one chair, one actor and an old school soundtrack  is all that’s needed to retell true stories from 1984 and those most affected by the strike.
Undermined is a scarily relevant show especially at a time when once again, some people are struggling to keep hold everything except the values of love and friendship.
Tickets £10.50 (£9 Cons)
