Due to popular demand, In On The Act return to the National Coal Mining Museum for England with their immersive performance We Also Served, developed in partnership with Theatre Royal Wakefield, as part of the Museum's #nationalisation70 celebrations.

Originally staged at Easter, We Also Served is a specially commissioned piece of promenade theatre, inspired by the lives of the Bevin Boys who served in the coalmines during WWII and the Nationalisation of the coal industry.

The performance highlights the experiences of the young men during WWII, who had hoped to join the armed services but were sent to unfamiliar communities to work in the coal mines and to face a painful and unsettling life. We Also Served has been created as part of the Museum’s year long programme of activities around Nationalisation.

In On The Act are Theatre Royal Wakefield's young company of talented theatre-makers, read more about them here.

PLEASE NOTE: THESE PERFORMANCES TAKE PLACE AT THE NATIONAL COAL MINING MUSEUM FOR ENGLAND. TICKETS ARE FREE AND CAN BE BOOKED THROUGH THE MUSEUM ON 01924 848 806.
