England, Arise

Bent Architect: England, Arise!

  • 9 November 2014 7:30pm-9:30am

Written by Mick Martin and directed by Jude Wright, this is the uplifting and powerful story of the young men and women of Huddersfield who believed passionately in a better world. Inspired by the revolutionary art, music and literature of the times, they refused to take arms against their fellow workers and fight in the First World War. They suffered prison and brutality for their conscientious objection, yet the community supported them so much that it soon became known as a ‘hotbed of pacifism’!
