The Masque of Anarchy Maxine Peake Directed by Sarah Frankcom

Clothed all in white, Peake seemed like a fiery angel as she fervently proclaimed “Such starvation cannot be as in England NOW we see.” Given only four performances, the performance was a call to political action that positively demands to be repeated.
THE GUARDIAN

In the reborn Albert Hall Maxine Peake and director Sarah Frankcom conjured the ghosts of Peterloo just yards from the site of the massacre, reciting all 37 verses of Shelley’s poem as the audience listened silently — a perfect accord of politics and place.

In the same room, in front of a packed and lively audience, Evan Davies led Are We Powerless?, a discussion on the ideas behind the poem and the possibility for protest in the modern world.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival.
