Archives - Close the Coalhouse Door

by Alan Plater

Directed by Lynn Gill and Michael McKever

Saturday 1st – Saturday 8th March 1975 in the Auditorium

A documentary musical with music and song in the Tyneside musichall tradition.

The Golden Wedding party of an old pitman and his wife forms a springboard into reflection and reminiscence about the past. The personal and working dilemma of their grandson pushes us into the future.

An unqualified hymn of praise to miners everywhere.
