Who Killed Edwina Beer – a play by Alan Dawson.

Tickets are now available on 07900 571737 and we will have some locally in the next few weeks. There will be limited seats so get in there asap. We want to thanks Newark and Sherwood District Council for funding the play and also Alan and all his volunteers and actors for putting this together.

Under the Headstocks Community Drama Group are well into rehearsals for their forthcoming production, ‘Who Killed Edwina Beer.’ The piece was written by local writer, Alan Dawson. Dawson worked at Clipstone Colliery as a coal face worker 1977 -1993 and lived locally at Garibaldi and Forest Town.  ‘Who Killed Edwina Beer’ has been commissioned by Clipstone Colliery Regeneration Group and will be performed in Mansfield at the Black Bull Woodhouse Road on the 22nd – 23rd March at 7.45pm with a matinee in Clipstone Welfare Hall on Saturday 23rd March at 2pm. The drama is set in and around Clipstone during the 1980s and 2022 when Stags are playing in the Champion’s league!

During the decadent 80s young miners began to look at life differently from the older generation and this caused problems in the village. However they all come together when tragedy struck and three young miners were trapped underground at Clipstone Colliery after a roof fall. Fast forward to 2022 – the village must pull together again as Butch Mining want to mine the mineral from the land around Vicar Water. Is there enough community spirit to pull the village through and thwart the mining giants?
