A solo performance about a police officer during the mining strikes. Includes a Q&A with refreshments afterwards.

Esteemed actor Ray Castleton delivers this monologue as a retired police officer. He tells us of his early life in a mining community, his relationship with his father, his first job as an NCB apprentice and how his uncle persuaded him to give up mining and join the police force. We then hear about his career, particularly during the year of the strike and the infamous battle of Orgreave, when he had to endure the divided loyalties between duty to his oath, from which the title of the play comes, his uniform and his friends, family and his old community. The play ends with him reflecting on how the strike impacted, and continues to impact, on him and his community even forty years later.
