Queens of the Coal Age by Maxine Peake

A powerful, heartwarming and funny true story of four women taking a stand in the face of a changing world. This Play is currently on at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester until 28th July 2018
 
‘I wrote QUEENS OF THE COAL AGE because I wanted to shine a light on Anne, Lesley, Elaine and Dot’s determination and bravery, Their ingenuity and passion. These FOUR extraordinary women did something… they took direct action. I didn’t want their protest to be forgotten I wanted to celebrate their efforts.’
