Shafted! moves forwards and backwards over time, starting after the Miners' Strike in 1984.
Act I demonstrates the depression and hopelessness which engulfed a West Yorkshire mining village post the strike and the plethora of menial jobs which Harry found in order to try and make a living. By the late 1990s Dot had suggested they move to Bridlington to start a new life running a Boarding House. 
Act II starts in 2016 with Dot suffering from cancer, immobile in a wheelchair, the act moves backwards through the success of the boarding house and their new life together, to the time they left Upton to run the boarding house in the 1990s.
