1945 - a time of victory, hope and rebuilding.

Tom returns from the war to the arms of his grateful mother and fiancee - and to the bosom of the pit. George fights his own battles and an election to secure a better future for his union men and their families. Connie mourns, loves and unites; Lizzie sees a new world, brim-full of opportunity. 

In a new Britain will their hopes and dreams be reconciled?

On Behalf of The People is a rich, engaging story, of a post-war mining family coming to terms with life and love in their rapidly changing world.

A new play commissioned by The National Coal Mining Museum for England.
