The Play

In 1972 tens of thousands of building workers won the first national strike in the industry for better pay and conditions. ‘Flying pickets’ left the contractors reeling. The Tory government and the large building companies wanted revenge, and the ‘Shrewsbury 24′ were put on trial in the following year.

Townsend Productions’ new play, United We Stand, follows in the traditional of their highly successful productions The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists and We Will Be Free! The Tolpuddle Martyrs Story, and focuses on the true and still very current events that led to the imprisonment of building workers Des Warren and Eric Tomlinson (Ricky Tomlinson of ‘The Royle Family’).

“United We Stand is the kind of cake that really doesn’t need any icing” British Theatre Guide

“The play was truthful, and hilarious and entertaining from the start” Nerve Magazine
