Land of Our Fathers


Theatre503, Euan Borland Productions and Tara Finney Productions present Land of Our Fathers by Chris Urch.

18 September – 12 October 2013

"I can't believe we're arguing over a Blue Riband.”
"I can't believe we're stuck down a mine."
"Yet here we are."

3rd May 1979, South Wales. Thatcher is counting her votes, Sid Vicious is spinning in his grave and six Welsh miners are trapped down a coal mine. Within two weeks everything these men believe in and everything they know will have changed.

Chris Urch's debut play is packed full of blistering comedy and a generation of lost voices.
