Details

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 regional premiere, a spirited and uplifting drama written by the daughter of a Nottingham miner. Expect dark humour and tension in Adam Penford’s first play as Artistic Director in this gripping 360° look at the events leading up to and during the miner’s strike.

Reviews for Hampstead Theatre’s production:
★★★★ “The verve and humanity of the piece are never in doubt” The Telegraph
★★★★ “Wonderland is theatre of grit and guts” The Times
★★★★ “moving and timely” The Independent
