Saltburn ’53 present Moles and the Habits of Birds

Saturday 27th May

’53 Drama Group present another opportunity to see their award winning play


Saltburn ’53 are delighted to have won the Semi Final of the All England Theatre Festival with their play Moles and the Habits of Birds, written and directed by Susan Pierce. Tickets sold for this special fundraising performance will help transport and accommodate a cast and crew of 36 to the Grand Final in Somerset.

Drawn from the events in a mining village 50 years ago when the collapse of a colliery spoil tip buried the village school and nearby houses, it seeks to explore the effects of a disaster on individuals and the community through a fictionalised response which, nevertheless, draws on survivors’ accounts of the disaster as a starting point for the drama.  

Performance time is 50 minutes after which there will be the chance to stay and join us for a drink and a chat. 

Tickets £7 Concessions £5

Doors 6.45pm Curtain up 7.30pm
