DIGGING IN

Digging In was commissioned by the North Staffs Miners Wives Action Group as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project Miners strike 1984-1985: 30 Years On. Digging In toured to five schools in Stoke-on-Trent, before ending with a finale performance at Mitchell Arts Centre.

It’s 1984 and life is complicated for nine-year-old Gary Hargreaves. His mum is pregnant, his sister is a teenage pain in the neck and his dad is on strike.
