The Wind Road boys is a new family friendly musical fusing comedy, drama and guy-thumping, tear-jerking musical numbers. The Ghost of an old miner has only one night to save a disused pit town from redevelopment but to change the future; he must relive his past. A haunting secret and lost love come together to teach us that the past we inherit; the future we build. A quality cast brings this inspirational production to life. A rousing, passionate tour de force that leaves you believing anything is possible.
“…so clever and funny…” Alex Hall, BBC Radio
This story of pride, love, loss, values battling against the odds and finding the strength to do what’s right is inspired by real miners’ stories. This spectacular production pushes events along at a whiplash-inducing pace. However, it is not simply a ‘story about mining’; it is about human ecstasy and tragedy that unites all people and has a truly universal message of love, respect and pride in our own and our collective past, present and future.
“It certainly is quite unique and something that we greatly admire.” Josef Weinberger Ltd
The Wind Road Boys paints a vivid picture of a strong community bound together in adversity, but also with a real spirit, where everyone helped out their ‘marra’.
“…swept the audience off its feet…a brilliant night’s entertainment.” One giant Leap
