Tickets to an "extraordinary" (The Observer) play are now £13.50 for performances at Darlington Civic Theatre next month. The Pitmen Painters achieved critical acclaim when it was performed at the National Theatre and on Broadway and is now touring the UK.

Save 50% on tickets to the show, penned by Lee Hall who wrote the screenplay for "Billy Elliot". The "romantic, funny, important play" (The Daily Mail) features the same cast who performed during its run at the National Theatre. The "cast does masterly work" says The Daily Mail.

The play tells the true story of the Ashington Group, a collection of miners in 1934 Northumbria who club together to employ the services of a lecturer in art appreciation. Information breeds inspiration and the men start applying their skills, painting pieces that become popular with art collectors. 

"It is a funny play that asks big questions about education, culture and the working classes," says The Observer.

This deal is for top priced tickets in the stalls or dress circle. The deal is valid for evening performances 8-12 July and the matinee on 11 July.
