Event description

Description

And the Beat Goes On…….

Nonviolent Direct Action has been part of the Quaker way for over three
hundred years. It has always taken many forms from the power of the pen,
through to practical measures verging on the subversive, and the sheer
ingenuity of creative nonviolence.
Its purpose has always been clear: to challenge injustice and inequality, even
that which is embedded within law; to oppose war; to speak truth to power. To
do these things it may be necessary to unsettle and stimulate, or to put it
another way, it’s sometimes necessary to make ‘beautiful trouble’.
And the Beat Goes On…. brings together Quaker men and women who
have all in their way made waves and rocked the establishment boat,
including the very early Abolitionists, the first known woman hunger striker, a
Palestinian Quaker peace activist, and the Trident Ploughshares movement.
Told through sketches and monologues, And the Beat Goes On…. treats its
range of characters with a combination of admiration and playful irreverence,
in the true spirit of NVA.
