I, Daniel Blake


Adapted for stage by Dave Johns who played Daniel Blake in the award winning 2016 film directed by Ken Loach, written by Paul Laverty. A touching and vital story of how people come together in the face of adversity and how sometimes creating a family to support you just isn’t enough.

Dan is a carpenter. A Geordie through and through. Just on the mend after a heart attack.

Katie has just arrived from London. Finally got a council house for her and the kids. A fresh start.

I, Daniel Blake is one of the most important stories of a generation. A glimpse behind the headlines and the stark reality of what happens when the political system is stacked against you. With 14.5 million people living in poverty in the UK, this is not fiction. It is reality.

Produced by Northern Stage, Birmingham Rep, ETT, Oldham Coliseum Theatre and tiny dragon Productions, in association with Cardboard Citizens.
