During the first half of the 20th century, more than 1,000 collieries were working in the UK. By 1984, only 173 were still operating. Documenting the devastation caused by the collapse of the industry,The Last Seam brings to life the real, powerful voices of the mining community.
Marking the closure of one of the last deep seam mines, Hatfield Main Colliery, this world premiere production uncovers and preserves the emotional stories behind our country's colliery heritage. Insightful, honest and at times humorous, The Last Seam gets to the heart of the community,from the courageous women who protested to the resilient men who risked it all.
