The Kingsnorth Six

The Kingsnorth Six, by Julia Hollander

In October 2007, climate change activists broke into Kingsnorth Power Station. They planned to climb its central chimney in protest against Government proposals to build more coal-fired power stations. But once on site they faced unexpected challenges. The play tells the story of their gruelling climb and their subsequent court case for criminal damage, in which they faced the threat of prison.

Produced and directed by Fiona Kelcher.

Julia Hollander is an author and journalist. She dramatised her memoir, When The Bough Breaks, for BBC Radio 4.
