2024 is the fortieth anniversary of the 1984/85 miners’ strike, a dispute still resonating today.
In this hard-hitting musical comedy, we follow the fortunes of three sisters determined to set up a branch of Women Against Pit Closures. We’re Not Going Back tackles the resilience of working communities, the make-and-mend fabric of family and the power of sticking two fingers up to a government hell-bent on destruction.
Written by ex-Chumbawamba founder member Boff Whalley, this musical will have you laughing and crying in equal measure.
