Captioned performance. Ages 14+.
From Jack Dean, the critically-acclaimed rap storyteller behind Grandad and the Machine comes a raucous new show with live music about England’s forgotten revolution.
On 9 June 1817 Jeremiah Brandreth assembles a crew of malcontents in a pub near Nottingham. Their plan is to march on London, overthrow the government, wipe out the National Debt and end poverty forever. What Jeremiah doesn’t know is that there is a spy in his ranks with other ideas…
Featuring an original score and live band, Jeremiah tells the incredible true story of the much-misunderstood Luddite rebellion.
Praise for Jack Dean:
‘Impressive poetic, musical and narrative skills… undoubtedly a performer with an exciting career ahead of him’. Exeunt
