Theatre needs men
The New Vic is searching for men to join its Community Theatre Company, particularly for its forthcoming production of Maxine Peake’s new play, Queens of the Coal Age.
Based on a true story, New Vic and Royal Exchange Theatre co-production, Queens of the Coal Age runs at the theatre-in-the-round from Friday, 7th to Saturday, 29th September and follows the story of four women who occupy Parkside Colliery over the Easter holidays in 1993 in protest at the fresh wave of pit closures.
The theatre ensemble will play miners at the Parkside Colliery from the Victorian period to the 1990s and will form an integral part of the show.
