Unite Scotland & Unite Community Presents
Inspired by the accounts of miners who lived through the strike, Undermined depicts a year where friendships were strengthened and communities came together. Experience events like the infamous Orgreave through the eyes of young miner Dale, as he takes you through his personal story inviting you into the action. This one-man show explores the humour and struggles of the miners’ strike through energetic and gripping storytelling. With a classic soundtrack, one chair and a pint of beer, Danny Mellor presents a youthful and contemporary approach to one of Britain’s most controversial disputes. Undermined is a reminder of how much things have and haven’t changed.
★★★★ ‘Other actors could do with taking a leaf out of Danny Mellor’s book. The book would be called How to do a One Man Show Properly’
OUTSTANDING SHOW – ‘Undermined is quite simply the best example of theatre telling a political story without labouring the point’ Fringe Review, Donald Stewart ★★★★
“A strongly-performed show with a sense of thoroughness and accuracy here, a piece which is partisan but passionate” – The Scotsman, David Pollock
