SUMMARY

Led by two of Britain's foremost theatre artists, director Samuel West and writer Lee Hall, Close the Coalhouse Door is an exhilarating ride through all the major strikes, victories and disappointments in British mining history. Told with a wry smile, sparkling dialogue and moving songs by an extended family of wives, vicars, sons, daughters and the miners themselves, the show has all the irony and lively mischief of Oh What a Lovely War and the dark grit of Our Friends in the North, both of which were previously brought to the Playhouse by Northern Stage.

Celebrated actor and director Samuel West is an Oxford Playhouse patron. Academy Award-nominee Lee Hall is renowned for writing the global hits Billy Elliot, The Pitman Painters and the screenplay for War Horse.
