WE WILL BE FREE! THE TOLPUDDLE MARTYRS STORY

SUNDAY 17TH NOVEMBER @ 7PM
ARDEN THEATRE, FAVERSHAM
After a sold-out performance of the Ragged Trousered Philanthropists back in February, this autumn Townsend Productions are returning to the Arden Theatre, Faversham with their brilliant new show.

MUST SEE – The Stage

We Will Be Free! is a drama set in 1834 about the Tolpuddle Martyrs. It follows the extraordinary true story of George and Betsy Loveless. He was a Methodist preacher and the leader of the six Dorsetshire farm labourers who were tried, convicted and condemned to transportation by an oppressive Government for having the temerity to swear a secret oath and form a union to fight against a succession of wage cuts inflicted by the local landowner.

This vitally important story is told using the entertaining theatrical style with live music, new and original songs with political cartoon, animation and puppetry. This story resonates with modern relevance, raising questions about present day political issues through the experiences of the past.
