A rebellious gig theatre show about one of England’s forgotten revolutionaries
From the critically-acclaimed rap storyteller behind Grandad and the Machine comes a raucous new gig theatre show about England’s forgotten revolution.
On 9 June 1817 Jeremiah Brandreth assembles a crew of protesters 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 original live music inspired by hip hop and cinematic scores, Jeremiah tells the incredible true story of the much-misunderstood Luddite rebellion – a movement that spanned the whole North of England.
