This engrossing, cinematically structured drama is about a female coal miner who dies in a mining accident. The play explores the difficulty she encounters in trying to make a living in such a male dominated profession, the difficulties her husband faces in having a wife with such an unusual job, and ultimately the reasons for her death.
"A major drama...Such is the richness of the script...that the experience was illuminating." - New York Daily News
"Fascinating." - The New York Post
"Death of a Miner has a pertinency as a play treating significant feminist concerns, and the background is filled with evocative details." - The New York Times
