We're Still Here

National Theatre Wales & Common Wealth

'It gives you a funny feeling, right here in your solar plexus, when people come together to speak up for themselves.’

Port Talbot steelworks, one of the last heavy industries in Wales, where generations of steelworkers carry their craft.

Standing shoulder to shoulder, sharing their space, stepping up to the plate. These are the leaders, workers, fathers and sons.

Marking National Theatre Wales’ return to Port Talbot, along with Common Wealth, We’re Still Here will explore the experiences and stories of the people behind the politically-charged headlines.

Common Wealth

"We were drawn to Port Talbot because of the powerful voices that were coming out in the S.O.S campaign. Watching the campaign unfold and the community rally together gave us a hope in a time where we don’t usually see people stand together for what they believe in.

For us, seeing working class leaders organise and inspire communities felt so necessary in a time when working class people are often marginalised from public debate.

Interviewing steelworkers and union leaders has taught us so much about looking after each other, dignity and the importance of saying no.

What’s happening in Port Talbot is specific to the steel works and relevant across the world, demonstrating how capitalism and globalization creates ghost towns with little thought of the people who live and work there. The play speaks to the changing landscape of the UK, the people that get left behind and those that fight.

We see this play as an opportunity to champion and share the wisdom from the Save Our Steel Campaign, for us to remember who we are, where we come from and what we can be."
