Rising Up: Peterloo 2019

A new commission written by Sean Cooney (The Young’uns) and Debs Newbold (Through The Seasons, King Lear Retold) to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre. Set two centuries apart, parallel narratives explore the themes of freedom of speech, protest and democracy through the stories and songs of two working class women.
