We Will Be Free. Townsend Productions. A new drama set in 1834 about the Tolpuddle Martyrs that follows the extraordinary true story of George and Betsy Loveless. He was a Methodist preacher and the leader of the six Dorsetshire farm labourers who were tried, convicted and condemned to harsh transportation by an oppressive Government for having the temerity to swear a secret oath and form a union to fight against a succession of wage cuts inflicted by the local landowner. using live music, new and original songs with political cartoon, animation and puppetry. Again, this story resonates with modern relevance, raising questions about present day political issues through the experiences of the past.
