    www.nationaltheatrescotland.com www.twitter.com/NTSonline By Joe Corrie Adapted, designed and directed by Graham McLaren “There’s nae power on earth can crush the men who can sing on a day like this.” In the 30th anniversary year of the 1984 miners’ strike, the National Theatre of Scotland revives Joe Corrie's 1926 classic play about a Fife mining community buckling under the strain of a seven month lockout. Driven by live, gutsy, folk-punk songs and intense, full-blooded choreography, this uncompromising production is a stark reminder that class conflict between those at the bottom of the social heap and those in power is perennial. “McLaren's production unleashes a memorably angry, vivid and theatrical retelling of a vital story in Scottish history. It's an exhilarating experience and not to be missed.” The Scotsman **** “Gut-wrenchingly emotional” “Vitally contemporary” The Herald ***** “Intensely powerful” “Brilliantly performed” The Times **** “Breathtaking” Sunday Mail **** Age guidance: 12+ Running time: approx 90 mins with no interval Image by kind permission of Peter Howson: My Great Heart, 1996, Oil on canvas, 244 x 183 cm © The Artist Supported by ScottishPower Foundation

      www.nationaltheatrescotland.com www.twitter.com/NTSonline By Joe Corrie Adapted, designed and directed by Graham McLaren In association with ON at Fife “There’s nae power on earth can crush the men who can sing on a day like this.” A powerful re-imagining of Joe Corrie’s neglected classic about a Fife mining community during the General Strike. Intensely physical, loud and charged with raw emotion, driven by explosive choreography and an original live soundtrack performed by leading Scottish musicians. To raise funds for the soup kitchens feeding the miners and their starving families, Corrie wrote In Time O' Strife whilst on strike himself, exposing the brutal lives of a family staring hunger and defeat in the face. Created by Graham McLaren (Men Should Weep, A Christmas Carol), the production uses fragments of Corrie’s other plays, poems and songs, celebrating his ability as a writer and his contribution to Scottish culture.
