Poverty and hardship played out at the turn of the century
THE Class Act Theatre Company open its new season with the much-anticipated drama Blackbird.
Set in Newcastle during 1910, it tells the story of a mining family living in poverty.
The eldest sons decide to join the great miners strike of that year. This is a devastating blow to the community and the family itself.
The play reflects the poverty and hardship of that era and the Class Act actors have been working throughout the summer to accurately portray the strong and gritty drama, written by David Wrightam.

Originally presented in 2005 to great acclaim, there are six actors in the play who took part in the original production.
David Wrightam said: "Blackbird is without doubt one of Class Act's finest productions. It has something for everyone.
"It is a strong earthy drama but has lighter moments. When it was first presented, it was described as a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I guess that sums it up well."
Blackbird runs for three nights at the Parkway Theatre, in Cleethorpes, from Tuesday, September 25 to Thursday, September 27.
