Event description

Description


In the wake of the huge success of Labour’s election campaign, which focused on hope and an end to austerity, Rise, Like Lions! weaves inspirational stories of workers in struggle with music, song and video.

The show exposes the 30-year plot to privatise the NHS and stages the fight to keep it in public hands. It dramatises the successful strikes of teaching support staff in Derby and Durham, and captures the spirit and defiance of the anti-fracking campaigners at the Preston New Road site in Lancashire.

With its thundering mix of folk, reggae and ska, Rise, Like Lions! brings you songs, stories and video scoops from the frontline of the class war. So, switch off the fake news and tune in to the real news from Banner Theatre!

The production is currently being supported by the NEU, Unite, UNISON, USDAW, GMB, PCS and Thompsons Solicitors.

Fantastic, empowering, goosebumps the whole time!”
Anna Quick, NUT Student Member

"If Bertolt Brecht had had access to new technologies and keyboards, this is what he would have created. Great!”
Senior Lecturer, Royal Holloway University

Audience members were absolutely entranced by the show. The conversation and debate sparked by the show lasted until closing time, and the bar was buzzing with people.”
Ben Fletcher-Watson, Director, The Round, Newcastle
