Say Owt presents: Jeremiah

  • York Theatre Royal (map)

York Theatre Royal
26th October 2019

York’s most raucous spoken word organisation presents a rambunctious new performance poetry 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.
