LATEST NEWS ON ‘ENGLAND ARISE!’
AN EXAMPLE OF THE SUBVERSIVE, WISHY-WASHY, LEFT WING PROPAGANDA ABOUT THE GREAT WAR THAT MICHAEL GOVE WARNED US ABOUT – SO WELL WORTH SEEING !
Link for promo of the new play depicted Arthur Gardiner and Concientious Objectors in the Great War, based on the research of Cyril Pearce. For a review of the book see: https://undergroundhistories.wordpress.com/2014/02/25/comrades-in-conscience-by-cyril-pearce/
The title is taken from Edward Carpenter’s song which was as much the anthem of the Socialist movement at the time as was O’Connel’s ‘Red Flag’. The play concludes with a rendition of this forgotten hymn.
A reading of the play at the Lawrence Batley Theatre was a great success – watch this space for future performances.
