We’re just back from the Mikron Theatre @ The Victoria, Beeston, and it was rather a good do considering the quite difficult subject, all woven into a good story. Also, all somewhat more informative than my schooling and vastly better presented and entertaining. I never knew what a Cropper was or what Croppers do… Do you? One of the stirring songs was The Cropper Lads from the Luddite actions of 1812. The ending was unusual for a Mikron Theatre play. There was more to the Luddites than just the smashing of a few bits of machinery.
Very aptly, some nearby very noisy mobile machinery that can be expected at semi-regular intervals for that venue was deftly included into the proceedings
Our earlier estimates for easily getting tickets on the night may need to be revised… Both the outside marquees were pretty much full!
In summary: A very good do from a slightly different crew to those we’ve seen before.
