WHERE AND WHEN IS IT?

Badseys Cafe Bistro, Hillmorton on Sunday June 3, 7.30pm.

WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT IT?

Mikron are unique - the only theatre company in the world to tour the inland waterways by narrowboat, bringing live theatre to unusual venues.

Can You Keep a Secret? tells the dramatic story of the Luddites; the sieges, the machine breaking, the bloodshed and the subsequent hangings. Whilst the country’s elite enjoy lavish balls and chattering salons, textile mill workers fight for their livelihoods by smashing up the machinery designed to replace them. Luddism - a fight for rights or fear of progress? Direct action or mindless vandalism?
