Oldham Coliseum Theatre Studio
By Ashleigh Sinclair and Rachel Stockdale
Produced by Northern Creations
You’re married to a coal miner. Manual labour is his life and the dirt under his fingernails is probably five years old. What would you think if he started taking two baths a day and developed a flair for oil painting?
Featuring original Geordie folk songs, Coal Girls is a funny, fictional insight into the wives and girlfriends of The Ashington Group, Northumberland miners who took the art world by storm.
Behind every great man is a greater woman and these women are a force to be reckoned with.
