Presented by Townsend Productions
A powerful new play from the company that brought us the sell out The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, based on the true story of one of the most turbulent industrial battles – the 1972 Builders' Strike.
The events surrounding the strike are still making headlines to this day, and forty two years on, the high-profile Shrewsbury 24 Campaign, led by picket turned actor, Ricky Tomlinson, is still seeking to overturn the unjust prosecution of the 24 building workers.
United We Stand tells the story behind the dispute with popular and political songs arranged by renowned folk musician John Kirkpatrick. Townsend Productions’ entertaining theatrical style creates a production in a way that is both compelling and thought-provoking.
