From tonight to Friday, October 9, Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society will perform John Godber’s Salt of the Earth at the Station Theatre, Hayling Island.
Published in 1989, the play is a humorous and emotional portrait of life in the West Yorkshire coal fields.
Spanning three generations, from 1947 to the present, it charts the decline of the coal mining community from the promise of nationalisation after the Second World War to the miners’ strike in the 1980s.
The saga captures the ambitions and disappointments of the Parker sisters, Annie and May, whose hopes centre on May’s son Paul and his academic success.
Three generations of characters are brought to life in this poignant comedy.
Salt of the Earth by Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society comes to the Station Theatre, Hayling Island from today to Friday, October 9.
Performances start at 7.45pm.
Tickets: £8, visit stationtheatre.co.uk or call (023) 9246 6363 to book.
