'When The Kids Grow Up'

By Ken James



This gripping drama is based on a true story. Beginning in the 1930's, it spans three decades from Edward VIII's Coronation visit to Dowlais, to the skiffle boom of the late 1950's. As the tale unfolds, a journey of humour, pathos and tragedy touches us in a struggle for survival against unemployment, the decline of heavy industry, eviction, family conflict, poverty and disease.
