(7.30pm show)
From 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 – a movement that spanned the whole North of England, had more British soldiers fighting it than Napoleon, and made the destruction of machinery a capital offence.

This little remembered story is brought to life as a live music gig performed by Jack Dean and a three piece band. A cellist, violinist and guitarist work with loop pedals to create an original score that mixes hip-hop, shoe gaze and cinematic composition styles, while Jack Dean delivers an epic true tale exploring lots of characters, all contained within rap verse metre accompanied by a vivid AV design projected onto the stage.

Written and performed by Jack Dean

'Impressive poetic, musical and narrative skills… undoubtedly a performer with an exciting career ahead of him.' Exeunt

'Artists like rap storyteller Jack Dean make us excited about what they might do next.' The Guardian

Running Time: 1hr 10mins (no interval)
Age recommendation: 12+
