Coaltown Blues depicts both the tragedy and comedy of poverty and politics; the struggles throughout Thompson’s childhood in a West Coast mining town. It is both a lively and comical celebration and a wrenching lament for the working class roots from which he sprang. Coaltown Blues resonates both for audiences who relate to the experiences of the play and to today’s audiences, as child poverty, the harsh realities and the resilience of life in mining towns again fill our news screens on a regular basis.
