Now playing as part of the Edinburgh Festival, Dust imagines a day in 2011 when Margaret Thatcher has died.

Miners’ leader Arthur Scargill is visited in his Barbican flat by Lawrence, a militant from the great strike of 1984-5.

The action shifts between the Barbican flat and a Doncaster maisonette where care worker, and former miner, Chris hears he is one of 700 council workers to be laid off.

The performance is sympathetic, moving and sometimes funny.
