The Johal family invites you to a surprise birthday party for Sunita, but as the curries simmer and rotis are smothered in butter, years of family drama bubbling under the surface start to boil over. Today, four decades after arriving in this country, things are set to change.
A new comedy drama about family from the producers of Britain's Got Bhangra and Break the Floorboards.
Renowned for his hilarious observations and loveable, friendly delivery Jason has been a firm favourite with comedy fans of all ages since his first solo stand-up show earned him huge critical acclaim and a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Newcomer Award back in 2005.
We're Not Going Back is about the 1984/85 miners' strike. More or less. But in this hard-hitting musical comedy there are no miners. Instead, we follow the fortunes of three sisters - Olive, Mary and Isabel - hit hard by the Government's war against the miners and determined to set up a branch of Women Against Pit Closures. It's February1984, and as the rumour mill stirs with developments of impending pit closures, the coal miners' unions are drawn into a battle of attrition against an unbending government. Forced into poverty, miners and their families become part of a strike that will resonate through the coming decades. But for many people, the war fought between politicians, police and pickets took a back seat to the fight to hold together families, friendships and community - fought on the battleground of living room and soup kitchen, meeting hall and social club. It was a battle fought with laughter and songs, with knees-ups, punch-ups and piss-ups. With music, comedy and grit, the three sisters embrace the values of the '84 strike and underline the empowerment; determination and vulnerability those communities were faced with in this war.
