About

Wonderland
Nottingham Playhouse
Friday 8 - Saturday 23 February 2019

Nottinghamshire, 1983. Two 16 year olds wait nervously at the pithead. Guided by a veteran miner, they descend into the brotherhood, banter, searing heat and liquid blue light of Welbeck Colliery.

Meanwhile in London, an American CEO known as The Butcher is brought in to reform King Coal. Pits close and a strike is called.

A Tory MP tussles with his leader’s hard line ideology, whilst an eccentric dandy is sent undercover to break up the strike. Cracks appear on all sides as the embattled miners are torn apart trying to protect their livelihoods and families. Nothing will be the same again.

Wonderland is a spirited and uplifting drama written by the daughter of a Nottingham miner. Expect dark humour and tension in this gripping 360° look at the events leading up to and during the miner’s strike.

★★★★ “This is a big play…full of heart.” The Guardian
★★★★ “Powerful, pertinent drama” The Stage
“Exceptional programming from Nottingham’s new Artistic Director Adam Penford” WhatsOnStage
