On The Line

Aled Pedrick

Directed by: Yasmeen Arden

It is 1985 and a group of proactive miner’s wives are hosting a festive fundraising party to collect for the hungry families in their community and we’re all invited. Babs and her best friend Jackie are putting on a night to remember.
Join us for an evening of boogie, bingo, and banter.
Celebrate a shared strength and dignity in unity; to stand up against the injustice that threatens to destroy our homes, history and identity all while dancing the night away to Wham!
In ON THE LINE we draw parallels between Thatcher’s “Divide and Rule” tactics and today’s political agenda, opening up a moment in recent history and making it more immediate to today.
Our audience is encouraged to bring a food donation to the party that will then go directly to those Londoners most in need.
Partnered with the Hammersmith and Fulham food bank, we are supporting parts of our own community that are forced to live on the line.
Stick around for the 80’s disco following the performance!
