From the team behind smash-hit plays Wor Bella, Hadaway Harry, Carrying David, Mr Covan's Music Hall and The Great Joe Wilson comes another incredible, forgotten story about the North East. 
The General Strike of 1926 was the biggest rupture in society since the English Civil War (1662). A million miners were told to take a 40% cut in wages. Britain's only General Strike followed. On May 10, 1926, strikers accidentally derailed the Flying Scotsman at Cramlington.

Eight Northumberland miners were imprisoned for a total of 48 years. Almost a century later, their fascinating story is - finally - about to be told!
