The story of Jeremiah Brandreth and the Luddite rebellion.

The work tells true story of the much-misunderstood Luddite rebellion and revolutionary, Jeremiah Brandreth.

A rambunctious show about one of the North's greatest forgotten revolutionaries. 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.
