The Last Seam

The Last Seam
Paying tribute to the people of the coalfields, The Last Seam brings to life the voices and stories of miners, their families and the local community.

A Cast Production

Directed by Daljinder Singh

Scripted by Garry Lyons

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 Seambrings 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.

'It gives a voice to the voiceless community.  Everyone knows someone or is someone in the play.'

Age Guidance: 16+ due to strong language and violent scenes.
