Following the critical acclaim of James Kenworth’s When Chaplin Met Gandhi and Revolution Farm, two plays which were a unique collaboration between professional theatre artists and young people in Newham, A Splotch of Red is the third in a trilogy that explores the borough’s rich heritage and shows of the talent of its young people.
The play will be performed in Newham’s libraries and Community Links’ Neighbours Hall in Canning Town.
This was the hall where Hardie spoke, first Labour Member of Parliament, at one of his many election rallies in Newham.
The play is being produced via the University using funding from Royal Docks Trust and Newham Council.
"It was difficult to leave not feeling inspired by this tale of grass-roots socialism."
The Morning Star
"..an absorbing and passionate play about an absorbing and passionate man."
