Hampstead Theatre
12 July

Down pit you're dark as death
and hot as hell, sweltering, swearing
in relentless pitch,
up to your waist in water,
rubble, grit, coal in your eyes
and lungs, coal in your shit.
You hold the picket line
against all odds, fighting for what
you know to be man’s right;
brought to your knees for scraps
you rage and weep, as all 
you ever worked for slips from sight.

Wonderland runs at Hampstead Theatre until 26 July
