In 1994 Grimethorpe Colliery was destroyed, along with the tight-knit working-class community surrounded it. Wasteland, Gary Clarke’s highly anticipated sequel to the multi award winning COAL, dives head first into a gritty story of loss, hope, tragedy and survival following the next generation in their quest for purpose and escapism in the 1990s illegal rave scene, where derelict warehouses became home for a new community of music and dance. 

Bringing together 6 professional dancers, 4 male singers from Glasgow community choirs, 2 brass musicians, projections, and a commissioned rave sound score this thrilling yet deeply touching production takes a close look at how 2 generations coped in an era of radical upheaval. (Word count 111)
