GUEST,Black belt caterpillar wrestler Play 'An August bank holiday lark' (5) Play 'An August bank holiday lark' 16 Mar 14


Had a quick look and could not find a thread about this play that I went to see in Halifax last nigh.
It concerns the beginning of WW 1 and the preparations for the Saddleworth Rushcart of 1914 as a starting point.
The actors have worked with the Saddleworth side to learn the dance steps and have obviously worked very hard to get things authentic. I hear that one of the cast is now joining Saddleworth as an active member.
The play was well worth seeing and I imagine that it will open the eyes of many ordinary members of the public to the folk traditions of the area. As you would expect the it becomes very emotional and I saw several members of the audience wiping their eyes as they left.
Go see it!
