Come along for a read as this play will be quite experimental and a little stylistic…The characters we are looking for are possibly 4 main roles and multi-roles for 4 others (possibly)…
Paul Greatorex : Mid-twenties; striking miner from the East Midlands with an inherent acute sense of fairness.
Jack Greatorex: Paul’s father, early fifties; a pit deputy and member of the National Organisation of Colliery Deputies and Shot-Firers, sticks to following the rules.
Sylvia Greatorex: Jack’s wife, Paul’s mother, early fifties; the voice of the uninitiated masses
Linda Greatorex: Paul’s wife, early twenties; supports her man through thick and thin.
Irvine Beardsmore: Chairman of the strike committee. Late forties/early fifties. A passionate militant who wears his heart on his sleeve.
Eric Armstrong: Strike Liaison officer, mid-twenties; a member of the colliery band who realises that his illusions will be shattered.
