Rising Up: Peterloo 2019

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

In 1819, the concept of freedom of speech, protest and democracy were tested when armed soldiers charged at peaceful protestors in what is now known as the Peterloo Massacre.

Two centuries on, these principles are still under threat. This new commission tells the personal stories of two women linked across time and through experience as they struggle to rise up and find their voice.

Rising Up boldly combines dramatic narrative and song, with text written by Debs Newbold (King Lear Retold, Through The Seasons) and songs by Sean Cooney (The Young’uns). The songs and music will be performed by Sam Carter (False Lights), Lucy Farrell (Furrow Collective) and Jim Molyneux (4Square).
