Set in 1979, in the weeks leading up to the General Election that ushered in Margaret Thatcher and a Conservative government that “changed Britain forever”, the story flips between the political wrangling at Westminster and a group of young, unemployed friends in Wigan, who find escape from their woes every Saturday night at the town’s famous nightclub, the Wigan Casino. It’s Billy Elliot meets The Full Monty (the UK one) and A Slice of Saturday Night. Songs include “Turning My Heartbeat Up”, “Do I Love You? (Indeed I Do)”, “More Today Than Yesterday” and “I Go to Pieces”.
