Red Ladder & Unite The Union present

We’re Not Going Back

Red Ladder Theatre Company and Unite the Union present…
Written by Boff Whaley, co-founder of the legendary band Chumbawamba

Tue 26 March, 7:30pm
Willows Social Club, 697 Holderness Rd, Hull HU8 9AN
Tickets £5 per person

3 Sisters.
75 Mines.
1 Cause.
(And a six-pack of Babycham)

It’s early 1984, and Olive, Mary, and Isabel are sisters whose everyday squabbles collide with a miner’s strike that forces them to question their lives, their relationships, and their family ties. This strike wasn’t just a war fought on the battlegrounds of a picket line, Parliament, and public opinion; it was as much a battle in the homes and families of those fighting for their communities.

In this thought-provoking musical comedy, we follow the fortunes of three sisters determined to set up a branch of Women Against Pit Closures. We’re Not Going Back tackles the resilience of working communities, the make-and-mend fabric of family, and the power of sticking two fingers up to a government hell-bent on destruction… and all with humour, song and a six-pack of Babycham.
