“I can’t believe it He left us nothing? Just a bad debt and a surname, if that’s worth anything”

Eleanor Warr’s play Cry up Liberty explores John Milton’s will, his daughters’ rebellion and surviving court transcripts to examine inheritance, family rage and sisterhood. She directs a rehearsed reading, followed by a panel discussion including Hannah Crawford (KCL), Karis Riley and the company. Part II of The Violent Household, a two-part series looking at power and violence in the seventeenth-century household. Developed through the Birkbeck/RADA MA Text and Performance, Cry up Liberty asks who has authority over storytelling and how we can take liberties with history.
