There's nae power on earth can crush the men who can sing on a day like this. A powerful re-imagining of Joe Corrie's neglected classic about a Fife mining community during the General Strike. To raise funds for the soup kitchens feeding the miners and their starving families, Corrie wrote In Time O' Strife in 1926 whilst on strike himself, exposing the brutal lives of a family staring hunger and defeat in the face. Some 87 years later, Graham McLaren has adapted, designed and directed this rarely performed classic play. Created by Graham McLaren (Men Should Weep, A Christmas Carol), the production uses fragments of Corrie's other plays, poems and songs, celebrating his ability as a writer and his contribution to Scottish culture. This edition pairs Corrie's original text with the script created by McLaren's adaptation process.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Graham McLaren has adapted the original text and interwoven fragments of Corrie's other plays, poems and songs to create a celebration of his oeuvre * Courier *
A memorably angry, vivid and theatrical retelling of a vital story in Scottish history . . . It's an exhilarating experience, this In Time O' Strife, and not to be missed. * Scotsman *
The meeting of music, dance and drama is frequently exhilarating . . . the production has a rare political anger. * Guardian *
Corrie's characters personify the stark dilemma faced by the striking miners . . . an intensely powerful production, though, brilliantly performed by a fine ensemble. * The Times *
