The fight for a place to belong.

1951. A third of County Durham’s villages are classified as ‘D’, no longer worthy of investment. Expected to die quietly they refuse to go without a fight.

Rooted in stories and memories of those who called those D villages home, a county-wide fight lasting over 25 years becomes a 12-month journey at Bet’s kitchen table as her family grapple with identity, loss and belonging.

With humour, tenderness and not a small amount of grit, the play speaks of fighting to be heard when no one’s listening and of finding a place to belong.

Suitable for ages 12+
