Luke Wright

Luke Wright celebrates 20 years of verse at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

 

There’s more to 2019 than Brexit. It’s also the year that a new Poet Laureate will be appointed, and in which poet Luke Wright celebrates the 20th anniversary of his first ever gigs with his first all-new poetry show in three years.

 

The poet, whose last visit to the SJT was in 2016 with his award-winningWhat I Learned from Johnny Bevan, will bring his new show Luke Wright, Poet Laureate to the venue in May.

 

Luke got around to thinking about combining these three momentous events (only two of which, let’s face it, are actual certainties). So he’s chucked his hat into the ring for poetry’s top job and embarked on a mission to write poems to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? Luke delves into the murky world of Poets Laureate past: the heroes, the villains, and ones who didn’t even write poetry – just who are these previously laureled rogues?

 

He’s a dark horse for the job at best. He rejected his invite to the Palace in 2012 and he’s really got to stop penning all those one-vowelled invectives about Tory politicians if he’s to get a look in. 

 

Luke says: “We turn to poetry at significant times in our lives: births, weddings, and funerals; when we are seeking solace; when we can’t find the right words ourselves. In the internet age we are pretty adept at seeking out the poetry we need. At times of national tragedy the right poet steps forward with the right words. So what need do we have of a national poet? How can just one poet represent our country? The laureateship is imperialistic and patriarchal. It imitates the monarchy it was created to prop up. Maybe it’s time to cut poetry free from the establishment.”

 

Luke Wright, Poet Laureate enjoyed a two-week sell-out run in Edinburgh, and now the show the critics are calling his best ever takes to the road, including Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre on Saturday 4 May.

 

The centrepiece of the show, as always, will be Luke’s blistering verse and impassioned delivery. Big-hearted and quick-witted, his poems have been lauded by everyone from Patti Smith to The Libertines. Truly a wordsmith and raconteur at the top of his game, he’s a Fringe First winner, a Stage Award and he’s been the Fringe’s favourite poet for 15 years.

 

Luke performed his first gig aged 17 while still at 6th form college in Colchester in early 1999. His first paid gig followed a few months later at Norwich Arts Centre. Shortly afterwards he co-founded poetry collective Aisle16, going on to inspire a generation of young poets (and reinvigorate a few older ones). He has performed around the world and published a series of acclaimed books. The latest, After Engine Trouble, has just been published by Rough Trade. 

 

Luke has written and performed 12 full-length shows, winning multiple awards for his debut ‘verse play’ What I Learned from Johnny Bevan. He has been credited with making poetry relevant to a new generation and revitalising the spoken word touring circuit. He has performed in venues ranging from the back rooms of pubs to the London Palladium and a grand chamber in the Palace of Westminster. He can often be seen opening for John Cooper Clarke, his verse documentaries on Channel 4 have been enjoyed by millions and his poems can be heard on BBC Radios 3 and 4, sometimes further afield. He curates the spoken word line-ups at Port Eliot Festival, Festival Number 6 and The Edinburgh International Book Festival and did so for eleven years for Latitude Festival.

 

For more information on Luke, please visit: lukewright.co.uk

 

Luke Wright, Poet Laureate can be seen in the McCarthy at the SJT at 7.45pm on Saturday 4 May. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website:www.sjt.uk.com

"Faust" RoH OperaSunday 5th May 6.45 pm

Disillusioned with life, the aged philosopher Faust calls upon Satan to help him. The devil Méphistophélès appears and strikes a bargain with him: he will give him youth and the love of the beautiful Marguerite, if Faust will hand over his soul. Faust agrees, and Méphistophélès arranges matters so that Marguerite becomes infatuated with Faust who,however, soon abandons her. Her brother Valentin returns from war and is furious to find his sister pregnant. Will Faust repent his destructive actions, and can his soul, and Marguerite's, be saved? Gounod's Faust (1859) was one of the world's most popular operas from the 1860s to World War II.

New & Selected Potatoes – poet John Hegley makes a welcome return to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

 

Thursday 9 May at 7.45pm

Poet John Hegley makes a welcome return to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month with his new show, New & Selected Potatoes.

 

The ‘interactive lyricist’ has 30 years’ experience at the Edinburgh Fringe, where some years ago he was nominated for the Comedy Award: but it's not just joking. 

New & Selected Potatoes is an exuberance of songs, drawings and poems and baroque dance steps with material encompassing furniture, fig rolls, fisher-birds and a trip to Rotherham Library. 

The show, which will also include a new poem written specifically for the SJT performance, draws on the audience's singing and movement potential and upon pieces in the book of this name, in which reside the author's family alongside John Keats, Giacometti and some Daleks.

 

John Hegley was born in North London in 1953 but soon moved with his family to Luton. Before attending Bradford University to study European Literature and Sociology, he worked as a bus conductor and as a civil servant. He began his performing career at Interaction (a tiny campus in North London which specialised in playful participatory theatre outreach and goat care), was discovered in 1983 by John Peel as part of the band The Popticians, and now enjoys a cult following among fans of subversive comedy. 

 

His surreal poetry is often heard on BBC radio and widely performed live, often set to music that is played by the poet himself. He has published ten books, including Glad to Wear Glasses (1990) and other titles of verse, prose and drama, several of which are illustrated with his drawings. He has also published a collection of photographs of potatoes.

 

John Hegley is one of three poets performing at the SJT in May, the others being Luke Wright, who brings his new show Luke Wright, Poet Laureate on 4 May, and Rowan McCabe, the ‘world’s first door-to-door poet’ on 15 May. Poetry lovers can see all three on a ‘three shows for the price of two’ offer.

 

New & Selected Potatoes can be seen in the McCarthy at the SJT at 7.45pm on Thursday 9 May. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

 Fundraising Walk - JOIN IN on Sunday May 12

 

 Scarborough Cavaliers are organising a “Walk for Water” fundraising event on Sunday, May 12. This is part of the club`s international project for this year and begins at the Hayburn Wyke Inn at 10.00am.
Chair of the International Committee, John Walker said “ We are hoping to raise money to continue to bring safe water to 3,000 people in six remote communities in Ghana.”
“Presently, women and sometimes young children spend many hours every day collecting water that is mostly not fit to drink”.
The Rotary Club has been working in Ghana for a number of years. Initially hand operated filters are installed in each community to enable them to produce enough safe water to drink. As more funds become available, the filters are replaced by boreholes, giving abundant fresh water at the heart of the village.
Working with trusted partners in Ghana, we have so far installed six filters,  and  borehole with two more are in progress.
This year the sponsored walk aims to bring a borehole to a fourth community.
The circular 5.3mile walk begins at the Hayburn Wyke Inn and heads through woodlands and along the Cleveland Way, then returns to the inn along the Cinder Track.
JOIN IN NOW - sign up and can get more details and sponsorship forms by emailing venkatesh.udupa@gmail.com

Dying Matters

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) backs Dying Matters campaign

 

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is backing a national campaign which aims to encourage people to talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement.

 

The campaign known as ‘Dying Matters Week’ will run from 13 to 19 May and this year’s theme is ‘Are We Ready?’ which is a question that challenges people to consider if they are ready for their own death, or the deaths of those they care about.

 

The scheme also looks to encourage people to talk about their needs towards the end of their lives, including where they want to die and discuss funeral plans with friends, family and loved ones.

 

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG Governing Body GP, Dr Jenni Lawrence, said: “Talking more openly about death can have a huge impact on the future of services available to patients and their families; we want people to have as much control as possible over how and where they die.

 

“Planning for death can obviously be very emotional and daunting which is why a lot of people don’t take care of the practical aspects such as wills, funeral planning, organ donation and potential future care for their families.

 

“This campaign is all about working together to make sure people get the right support when it comes to death, whether it is helping people plan for the end of their life or supporting carers, friends or family.””

 

The campaign can also be supported through volunteering at local hospices, supporting local bereavement charities or even hosting local community events to spread the word about ‘Dying Matters Week’.

 

You can find out more on the campaign and how to get involved on the Dying Matters website: https://www.dyingmatters.org/blog/dying-matters-2019-theme-are-we-ready

 

Dying Matters also has an events map on their website so you can see what is happening locally and wider, which you can view at: https://www.dyingmatters.org/page/map-awareness-week-events-2019

 Tuesday 14 May

Door-to-Door Poet

Meet the world’s first Door-to-Door Poet at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

 

Wednesday 15 May, 7.45pm

What do you think would happen if you knocked on a stranger's door and offered to write them a poem?

Find out in a new show, Door-to-Door Poetry, at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month.

 

Three years ago, Rowan McCabe became the world’s first Door-to-Door Poet. Knocking on strangers' doors, he asks what is important to them, then goes away and writes a poem about this, free of charge, before bringing it back and performing it on their doorstep.

 

Through this bold and arguably stupid act, he hopes to prove that anyone in the world can enjoy poetry. The project has been featured inThe Guardian, on BBC

Breakfast and was named 'Best of Today' on BBC Radio 4.

 

Through a funny and thought-provoking mix of spoken word and theatre, Door-to-Door Poetry charts the full story of Rowan's adventures around the North East of England, including his visit to a mosque in Newcastle and his trip to Kingston Road in Stockton, the location for Channel 4’s controversial documentary Benefits Street.

 

Completely out of his comfort zone, Rowan stumbles into a series of unlikely events that question fixed notions about the world we live in. Discussing isolation and prejudice in today's society, this show asks a simple, yet vital question: Can we trust strangers?

 

Door-to-Door Poetry is the third poetry evening at the SJT in May: Luke Wright brings his new show Poet Laureate on Saturday 4 May, and John Hegley will perform his new show, New & Selected Potatoes, on Thursday 9 May. Poetry lovers wishing can get tickets for all three shows for the price of two if booked at the same time.

 

Door-to-Door Poetry can be seen in the McCarthy at the SJT at 7.45pm on Wednesday 15 May. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

Award-winning trumpet player, Chris Hodgkins, leads an outstanding Anglo/American quartet for this UK tour – New York based, South Korean Jinjoo Yoo on piano, guitarist Wayne Wilkinson and Alison Rayner on bass. 
 

"I had the opportunity to record and work with Wayne in the UK in 2017 and for the tour I added Alison Rayner - my favourite bass player," explains Hodgkins.  "A year ago I heard Jinjoo Yoo's work on a blog "Jazz Lives". I was knocked out with her playing, fresh; modern but with a marvellous grasp and redolence of the past - coincidentally Lance Liddle of Bebop Spoken Here gave Jinjoo a rave review."
 

The quartet will be performing some of their favourite standards as well as four original pieces written specially for the tour.  Wilkinson wrote 'Martino’s Waltz' in honour of the jazz guitarist Pat Martino who suffered a severe brain aneurysm and made a remarkable recovery by relearning the guitar by studying his own recordings.  'Two Hats and a Paper Bag’ is inspired by Rayner’s meeting in New York with Jaco Pastorius.  Yoo's new composition is dedicated to Mary Lou Williams, ‘To Mary With Love’ and inspired by the tune ‘Mary's Waltz’, also known as 'Bebop Waltz’, by Herbie Nichols. 
 

“‘Festooned with Trumpets’ is dedicated to Humphrey Lyttelton to whom I lent my trumpet for a concert at the Bull’s Head,” explains Hodgkins.  "A couple of weeks later I was listening to Humph present his programme on the BBC ,"The Best of Jazz", when he announced that he had left his horn home for the first time in a 60 year career and that I "arrived like the US Cavalry in the nick of time festooned with trumpets”. Hence the title."

RAF 2019 Anniversary Tour

cache_1304943.jpg

With a series of 10 charity concerts, the Royal Air Force Music Charitable Trust is pleased to announce their 2019 Anniversary Tour will start at the Spa in Scarborough on Friday 17th May. 

 

Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of the charity, and in accordance with its charitable objects, this special 2019 tour will once again be ‘raising welfare funds by the performance of live music by Royal Air Force musicians’. Indeed, despite being one of the newest and smallest of the family of RAF Service charities, with no employees and managed by just three trustees, over these years the charity has established itself as one of the most significant organisers of Royal Air Force charity concerts, whilst also donating in excess of £60,000 to various Service charities.

 

Malcolm Goodman says that “following the success of the RAF Centenary Concert in Lincoln Cathedral and other RAF100 events in 2018, it is a privilege to present so many concerts by some of the finest military musicians in the country. With performances by the Central Band of the RAF, Band of the RAF College and Band of the RAF Regiment, along with RAF Swing Wing and the Royal Air Force Squadronaires, this will be a very special celebration year for the RAF Music Charitable Trust.”

 

Following the concert in Scarborough, the RAF bands will perform in Newark, Doncaster, Weston Super Mare, and uniquely in the cathedrals of Exeter, Chester and Sheffield, along with a series of three concerts in London.

 

The charity was established by Sergeant (Ret.) Malcolm Goodman MBE who was then a serving member of the Band of the RAF Regiment, and also Public Relations and Marketing Manager for the RAF Music Services. In his role as Honorary Administrator, from the charity’s home in Newark he is supported by two other volunteer trustees, Warrant Officer (Ret.) Trevor McDonald and Sergeant (Ret.) John Baigent. As former RAF musicians, all three trustees are also veterans of the First Gulf War, having served together on active service at Field Hospitals in Saudi Arabia during the 1991 conflict.

 

Following the appointment of former Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael Graydon GCB CBE, the RAF Music Charitable Trust was registered with the Charity Commission in 2004.

‘We’re giving local artists the chance to reveal their hidden talents – and raise money for the church at the same time,’ said festival spokesman Trevor King.

‘Many people in this area may have not exhibited before and their work is maybe in the shed or the bedroom and kept secret.’

Mr King said they want to feature a diversity of art, including paintings, drawings, photography and 3-D work including ceramics, glassware and textiles.

He added: ‘We know this town has so many people who are really gifted. We want them to get involved and show us what they can do.’

All the exhibits will be up for sale with the artist receiving an agreed percentage of the sale price, said Mr King.

There promises to be something for everyone during the week with a busy programme of events.

·      Opening night with cheese and wine. Steve Brookes on piano

·      Open rehearsal of Staxton Singers

·      Film night showing Ewan McGregor in Christopher Robin

·      Scalby School music evening

·      Published artists and poets at literary evening

·      Scarborough Community Choir in concert

·      Thanksgiving Praise Service

The festival is the latest of a series of fundraising events St Mark’s is staging as it aims to raise £250,000 to build an annex at the rear of the church by 2022.

The extension will include a kitchen and café area, toilets, an office, meeting rooms and storage space.

A new £95,000 roof has just been completed from grants, legacies and a series of fundraising events held over three years.

Services were held in the church hall on Coldyhill Lane until work to the roof as well as extensive rewiring inside the church was completed.

Looking ahead to the festival and daily exhibition, Mr King said: ‘Everybody is excited about what we have planned.

‘We hope people from across the town will come along and really enjoy all the festival has to offer with us.’

CLIFF RICHARD

TO RETURN FOR SUMMER 2019 GIG AT SCARBOROUGH OPEN AIR THEATRE

The UK’s most successful hitmaker, Cliff Richard, is returning to Scarborough Open Air Theatre in 2019.

It is announced today that Cliff will headline Europe’s largest open air arena on Wednesday June 26.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Sunday November 18 at scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

The show marks a return to the Yorkshire coast for the music legend following his sell-out show at Scarborough OAT in 2017 and comes as the singer is celebrating the 60th anniversary of his first single Move It! being released.

Marking this significant milestone, Warner's Music is releasing a new album of completely original songs. The album Rise Up is Cliff's 104th official UK release,  although it is the first album for 14 years, since 2004's Something's Goin' On, that features completely new material rather than Cliff's unique interpretation of classic songs.

Cliff is the second 2019 headliner to be revealed for Scarborough OAT following the announcement earlier today that Kylie Minogue will perform at the Yorkshire coast venue on Thursday August 1.

The announcements mark the start of the 2019 season and follow a record breaking 2018 which saw the venue attract more than 90,000 music fans.

Venue programmer Peter Taylor, director of promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “Cliff Richard is without a doubt a legend of the music industry. He has enjoyed massive success for 60 years and wows his audience time and time again.

“We have worked with Cliff on numerous shows and tours and are absolutely delighted to be working with him again, and especially to be bringing him back to Scarborough.

“The crowds loved Cliff in Scarborough in 2017 and I have no doubt they will have an absolute ball once again watching and hearing their hero perform the hits that made him a household name as well as his new material which is sure to be a massive hit.”

Cliff’s new album Rise Up will be released on November 23. The album’s title track is currently riding high in the vinyl charts and is his 145th official UK release, showing that Cliff continues to be a much-loved music legend, and someone who is very capable of entertaining with great energy and passion.

In 60 years, Cliff has recorded almost 1,300 song titles, composed 100 songs, achieved 14 number one singles (40 Top 5, 68 Top 10, and 96 Top 20), and seven number one albums (28 Top 5, 44 Top 10, and 53 Top 20). Move It!, where it all started, is the most recorded song in Cliff's back catalogue, numbering 23 different versions.

Able to change with the times and tastes and remaining hugely popular, Cliff nonetheless has stayed faithful to his rock and roll roots throughout. Because, when many people would be thinking of retiring or settling down to a quieter life, Cliff Richard continues to draw massive crowds to his concerts and regularly reaches the top ten with his albums. Not bad for someone who critics thought wouldn't last way back in 1958!

Tickets for Cliff Richard’s headline show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre go on sale at 9am on Sunday November 18 viawww.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com or from Scarborough Open Air Theatre Box Office (01723 818111) and the Discover Yorkshire Coast Tourism Bureau (01723 383636).

Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes pioneered the alt-country and Americana music movement in Australia, beginning with 2010 debut album Ballad of a Young Married Man. 

The band have played just about every major festival on the Australian calendar and have toured with the likes of Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Joan Armatrading, Shawn Colvin and The North Mississippi Allstars, just to name a few. 

Even on large festival stages Lachlan and the band create the feeling of a warm, intimate space - the emphasis is on the storytelling (as much between songs as during them) and the 'fourth wall' is most definitely broken. The band is well known for spontaneous sets

Wild Card have made a name for themselves on the European jazz scene in the last few years and have a residency upstairs at Ronnie Scotts.

‘The disparate genres tumble over one another in a cheerful riot... Great tunes, great musicianship and great fun’  Londonjazznews.com

‘A festival highlight - groovacious music purveyed through jazz edginess to an appreciative audience. Wild Card indeed!’ Paul Pace (Booker Ronnie Scotts)

Wagner – Prelude to Act 1 and Act 3 of Parsifal


For his final masterpiece, Wagner turned away from themes of power and romantic love towards the sacred realm, aiming to compose a work in which ‘the most sublime mysteries of the Christian faith are openly presented on stage’. His ‘festival play of consecration’ re-tells the ancient story of Parsifal, a ‘holy fool’ made wise through pity and redeemed by a simple act of compassion. Act III is the spiritual heart and emotional climax of the work, as Parsifal fulfils his journey towards understanding. After a solemn orchestral prelude to represent the turmoil from which the world must be saved, there follow two scenes of redemption. In the first, Parsifal shares his own transformation with Kundry by baptising her; in the second, he heals the wounds of Amfortas. Between the two scenes, the famous Good Friday Music celebrates the day on which the world is renewed – a moving paean to the beauty of nature that sees springtime as a reflection of the Resurrection of Christ on Easter Day. The work ends with an unforgettable chorus, a symbolic joining of earth and heaven, as boy trebles join a massed chorus while a white dove descends. ‘The hero’s path to compassion and understanding can be a metaphor’ says Pope Francis, ‘to better understand how human beings understand themselves today.’ 

Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé are second-to-none in this music. Their 2013 Proms performance was described by The Guardian as ‘a constant wonder’ and by The Spectator as ‘miraculous’, while for The Daily Telegraph he and the orchestra found the ‘spiritual halo’ and ‘all the essential pain and anguish’ of the work. Heard in York Minster during Holy Week, this will surely be an unforgettable performance.

'Elder’s single-minded patience creates a powerful and quietly hypnotic sense of weary sadness, an entirely appropriate feeling of pale grandeur. He controls everything with 'the surest of touches right up until a deeply moving account of the final bars, and his orchestra are with him every second of the way, playing with sensitivity and feeling, as well as an impressive delicacy of timbre' - Gramophone

Meet Violet

Meet Violet at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre 

Violet, a new play about human connection and inter-generational friendship comes to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month.


Violet is starting to forget, but she's got a long life to remember before she does. There are rights to wrong and ends to tie up; a life well lived is never neat. Generations younger, Bertie is at the beginning with no idea what lies ahead. She's looking for something to point her in the right direction. 

From new playwright Bebe Sanders and award-winning company Poor Michelle,Violet is a new play about human connection and inter-generational friendships. It quietly explores themes of mental health, dementia, and loneliness without forgetting the often funny and absurd moments of ordinary life.

 

Directed by Ellie Gauge, Violet is written and performed by Bebe Sanders. Bebe graduated from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2013; her acting credits since include Twelfth Night (Orange Tree), Three Winters (National Theatre) and international tours of The Bunker Trilogy and The Frontier Trilogy (Jethro Compton Productions). Her first play, Pebbles, had a sell-out run at The Katzspace in October 2017. She is currently developing a new play supported by Paines Plough as one of their Big Room writers. 

 

Violet can be seen in the McCarthy at the SJT at 7.45pm on Tuesday 7 May. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

An illustrated talk of an epic polar adventure by master explorer and storyteller Michael Palin.

In September 2014 the wreck of HMS Erebus was discovered at the bottom of the sea in the frozen wastes of the Canadian Arctic. It’s whereabouts had been a mystery for over a century and a half. From its launch in 1826 to its ultimate catastrophe in the Arctic, Michael’s account brings this extraordinary ship back to life.

He explores the careers of the ship’s explorers and the courage of British sailors and officers on their voyages to the ends of the earth.

To help tell this story Michael travelled to various locations around the world to search for local information and to experience at first hand the terrain and conditions that would have confronted the Erebus and her crew. His account combines a chilling adventure and a golden age polar exploration.

Michael has written and starred in many TV programmes and films. He has also made travel documentaries taking him from the Poles to the Sahara Desert.

His books include accounts of his journeys, two novels and several volumes of diaries. From 2009 -2012 he was president of the Royal Geographic Society and in 2013 made a BAFTA fellow.

Don’t miss this chance to meet Michael and have a book signed by him at the event

RAY LAIDLAW and BILLY MITCHELL present a  joyful, funny & emotional celebration of Tyneside's favourite band, featuring acoustic performances of LADY ELEANOR, MEET ME ON THE CORNER, FOG ON THE TYNE, RUN FOR HOME and more!
 

When Alan Hull, Rod Clements, Ray Jackson, Simon Cowe & Ray Laidlaw exploded onto the UK music scene in 1970, their sparkling songwriting quickly established the band as the standard-bearers for acoustic-based rock, cutting through the prevailing pop and glam sounds of the 70's.

International success followed, and thanks to a string of unforgettable songs including Lady Eleanor, Meet Me On the Corner, Fog On the Tyne and Run For Home, Lindisfarne's music continues to be heard on the radio today.

In this unique show, Ray & Billy perform all those great songs and more, and share first-hand the story of the band behind them...

Rouse Ye Women! at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

Rouse Ye Women! at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre

A groundbreaking folk opera featuring original songs and music by revered folk musician John Kirkpatrick comes to Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre next month.

Rouse Ye Women! tells the story of the Black Country women of the early 1900s who spent their entire lives making chains. They had no vote, were largely illiterate, worked a 54-hour week for ‘starvation wages’, and had to take their children to work.

 

But in the autumn of 1910 hundreds of the women chainmakers of Cradley Heath held a ten-week strike led by the remarkable trade union organiser and campaigner Mary Macarthur. They won a minimum wage doubling their incomes and returned to work confident that, by sticking together in a union, they could stand up to the chain masters and companies.

 

Rouse Ye Women! is a folk-song opera that shares the story of the workers and campaigners through rousing, heartfelt traditional song and music. Written by John Kirkpatrick (The Albion Band, Steeleye Span) and Neil Gore, directed by Louise Townsend, designed by Elizabeth Wright and with lighting design by Daniella Beattie, it is performed by Bryony Purdue, Rowan Godel and Neil Gore.

 

Louise Townsend says: “The focus is not just the massive achievement of the women in their fight, but also how Mary Macarthur and the National Federation of Women Workers, of which she was a founding member, sought to challenge the prevailing view that women made poor trade unionists, were a threat to male employment and wages, and were generally unorganisable.

 

“Mary herself wanted trade unions to educate women workers to be better citizens, empower them to demand more from life and gain fair treatment as workers; to ensure that women can be an effective force within the trade union movement to strengthen the position of the entire industrial working class. We will aim to draw parallels with the inequalities in the lives of women just over a hundred years ago with modern issues of family life, low pay, the minimum wage, the gender pay gap and equality of opportunity.”

 

Neil Gore says: "The story is truly inspirational, centering Mary’s energy and, and her skills as an organiser and tactician. She came to be admired by her trade union and socialist comrades as well as those in positions of power. Most importantly, she gained the trust of the women she so skilfully organised and represented. She lived a thrilling, breathless life sustained with unfaltering courage and determination to achieve; she was cool and persuasive in argument and possessed immense good humour and common sense. We aim to celebrate her enormous achievements and her all-too-often-overlooked legacy.”

 

John Kirkpatrick says: “The songs and music are inspired in large part by traditional industrial folk song, music hall, and protest songs, as well as from projects created within the folk revival period of the 1960s and ‘70s, themselves based on direct links with traditional music of the past, with a modern, contemporary twist. Through new rousing songs and moving ballads we aim to tell the story of the strike by reflecting, imitating and embellishing the styles of music that were most significant to those who struggled to make it a success.”

 

Rouse Ye Women! can be seen in the McCarthy at the SJT at 7.45pm on Friday 5 April. Tickets are priced from £10, and can be booked at the box office on 01723 370541 or via the website: www.sjt.uk.com

The second opera in Wagner's Ring Cycle holds special appeal for audiences with its dramatic power and remarkable music, including the famous ‘Ride of the Valkyries’. In the highly emotional world of humanity love animates the actions of all the leading characters: Wotan wants to protect his children but is forced to forsake them. His twin offspring Siegmund and Sieglinde fall passionately in love, and his warrior daughter Brünnhilde defies Wotan by trying to protect the twins. He punishes her by stripping her of her immortality and putting her to sleep surrounded by a wall of flames that only the greatest hero can brave.
