The Stars Look Down
‘The Stars Look Down’
From the classic novel by A J Cronin freely adapted by Alex Ferguson.
‘The cage dropped. It dropped suddenly, swiftly, into the hidden darkness. And the sound of its falling rose out of that darkness like a great sigh which mounted towards the furthermost stars.’
An uplifting family saga about a miner’s son who resolves to fight the profiteering that killed so many through underground accidents and starvation, and the injustice that wears down families and communities.
A physical theatre version of this classic 30s novel set in the North East exploring the life of young Davie Fenwick as he strives to gain decent wages and conditions for the pitmen. He falls in love with the coal owner’s daughter but is eventually disillusioned of ever achieving justice after a preventable pit disaster claims the lives of many men.
