Land of Our Fathers, the 2013 critically acclaimed debut play written by Chris Urch and directed by Paul Robinson, is coming to the Theatre Royal.

Winner of Time Out’s Critic’s Choice and Fringe Show of the Year 2013, Land of Our Fathers is produced by Theatre503, Tara Finney Productions and Wales Millennium Centre and is packed full of blistering comedy and echoes a generation of lost voices

The play is set in May 1979 when Margaret Thatcher is counting her votes, Sid Vicious is spinning in his grave and six Welsh miners are trapped down a coal mine.

As the men await their rescue, secrets emerge and accusations fly.

Within two weeks, everything they believe in and everything they know will have changed.

Original cast members Joshua Price and Taylor Jay-Davies reprise their roles as Mostyn and Chewy.

They are joined by John Cording, Tomos Eames, Cornelius Booth and Robert Jezek .

Tara Finney, of Tara Finney Productions, said: “I am delighted to be taking Land of Our Fathers on tour, enabling more people around the country to see this beautiful play.

“I have no doubt it will continue to enthral people as we move from the Welsh to English venues.”

Paul Robinson, Artistic Director at Theatre503, added: “The response so far has been thrilling and we’re delighted to be bringing the production to some fantastic venues in England.

“The story is so universal with characters that you can’t help but fall in love with, and we hope the play will continue to bring laughs and tears as it continues its journey.”
