‘Nobody dies in football matches in fires. It doesn’t happen’

At 3.40pm on May 11th 1985, a small fire broke out in the main stand at Valley Parade football ground during the last game of the season. Within four minutes, the wooden structure was ablaze.

Adapted from over sixty real-life testimonies, this bold and pertinent piece of documentary theatre pays homage to the supporters who lost their lives in one of the darkest days in British footballing history.

On the 30th anniversary of the disaster, The 56 examines the solidarity, strength and community in the face of overwhelming tragedy.
