  Wasteland is the new production from the award winning duo of Gary Clarke and Steven Roberts

Carlton Main Frickley will be making a return to the stage next week as players from the band will take part in the new production from award winning British choreographer Gary Clarke and producer Steven Roberts entitled 'Wasteland'.

Exciting

It's another exciting artistic collaboration for the Yorkshire band and comes following the critical success of the stage production of 'Coal' also by Gary and Steven.

Players Toni Durrant and Anna Spedding will be teaming up with their Honorary Vice-Presidents for a show that marks the 25th anniversary since the demolition of Grimethorpe Colliery and 30 years since the rise of UK rave culture.

'Wasteland' is a new dance theatre show with rehearsals already underway before the first performance takes place on Wednesday 15th May in Doncaster.
